Psychological Effects of Music
This is my second post on my new series concerning environmental psychology. Music plays a part in how some of us get through the day. According to Social Statics
, 51% of people listen to music every day. In my Psychology class, we conducted an experiment where we measured the heart rate of students listening to various songs. The experiment concluded that students who listened to high tempo songs, had a higher heart rate than students who listened to slow tempo songs.
Since there is a high volume of people listening to so much music, it could be inferred that music can play a role in developmental growth. This is a video exampling the psychological effects of music. Feel free to watch and share your thoughts.
