I have not much to say but on copelandia cyaenc.. (in fact any other) you realize how much music/sound is affecting your mood. I could tell so much about it but its forbidden here.
haha, the old brown noise storry. What woofer size would be needed to get such low frequencies? (in fact, and for the researchers its really a clean thing that the brown noise has never been found yet)edit on 8-3-2012 by verschickter because: (no reason given)
The Mozart Effect Studies
Early experimentation on the effect of music on the brain was conducted in 1988, when neurobiologist Gordon Shaw, along with graduate student Xiaodan Leng, first attempted to model brain activity on a computer at the University of California at Irvine . They found in simulations that the way nerve cells were connected to one another predisposed groups of cells to adopt certain specific firing patterns and rhythms. Shaw surmises that these patterns form the basic exchange of mental activity. Inquisitively, they decided to turn the output of their simulations into sounds instead of a conventional printout. To their surprise, the rhythmic patterns sounded somewhat familiar, with some of the characteristics of baroque, new age, or Eastern music.
Shaw hypothesized: If brain activity can sound like music, might it be possible to begin to understand the neural activity by working in reverse and observing how the brain responds to music? Might patterns in music somehow stimulate the brain by activating similar firing patterns of nerve clusters?
