Transcript of does music affect your heart rate

Oshana Barron Does Music Affect Your Heart Rate? abstract introduction My name is Oshana Barron and my project is the study of the affect music has on the human heart rate. purpose/problem The purpose of this project is to learn and understand the affects of music on human heart rate. hypothesis materials procedure data analysis (pictures) conclusion bibliography Yes, i predicate that the faster the beat of the music the faster the heart rate and vice versa. Omron Blood Pressure Wrist Unit
CD or MP3 player
EarphonesMusic from various genres: jazz, classical, rock, pop, R&B, etc.
A number of human participantsChair 1. Gather materials needed for your experiment. List all of the materials used. Also list the names of the specific songs you will be using.
2. Follow the instructions for using the blood pressure wrist unit. Be sure to follow all instructions on how to operate the unit.
3. Music playlist with the songs you will be using for your experiment
.4. Ask one of your participants to sit down in the chair. Attach the blood pressure wrist unit to your participant's wrist. This monitor will remain in place during the experiment
.5. Ask your participant to sit quietly for about 1 minute. After 1 minute, start the wrist unit to begin measuring the pulse or heart rate. Record the resting heart rate and blood pressure.
6. Using earphones, allow your participant to listen to the first song you have selected for 2 minutes. After 2 minutes, stop the music and take the participant's heart rate and blood pressure reading.
7. Repeat step 6 for the rest of the songs you have chosen. Record the heart rate and blood pressure reading after each song.
8. Remove the wrist unit from your participant.
9. Repeat steps (3-8) for the rest of the participants in your study.
10. Calculate and record the average heart rate readings for all participants. http://www.crystal-clear-science-fair-projects.com/music-science-project.html
https://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&q=cache:GNiIGZdRCF4J:www.blmhs.org/uploaded/documents/ The final results of my experiment is that music does affect the heart rate. My hypothesis was correct. The heart rate is regulated by the medulla oblongata.
The brain responds to rhythm and when we listen to music, the brain catches the rhythm and this is why it affects heart rate: it becomes subconscious, like a neurological pulse,and this affects the medulla oblongata which controls heart rate. The heart doesn't beat at the same tempo as the music, but it slows down or speeds up in order to become closer to it.Heart rate can be influenced by different outside sources, such as exercise, temperature, emotions, or music.
