Music & The Brain
Sound is the nutrient for the nervous system
- DR. Alfred Tomati
Listening to music can decrease anxiety, speed healing , increase optimism and decrease pain. It also helps getting a incredible memory. Alzheimer's patients can recall and sing songs long after they've stopped recognizing names and faces. There is growing evidence that listening to music can help stimulate seemingly lost memories and even restore some cognitive functions. Music also boost creative energies through the production of alpha and theta waves. Large influxes of alpha waves induce states of enhanced creativity while theta waves are associated with dreaming, learning and relaxing. The key of boosting creative energies is to listen to the type of music you enjoy the most If your having a hard time with your mathematics it would make sense if you listen to some music while it stimulates more artistic and visual senses.
