Transcript of Humans--Music

Music and the Mind Works Cited http://www.musictherapy.org/ The mood in these two videos are completely opposite. But on the technical surface, they're the same: a bunch of notes played in a certain way. So how does "a bunch of notes" fit into our lifestyle so effectively? Some theorize that the emotions we feel when we listen to music aren't true "emotions"; rather, they are "music-emotions". Take this green circle as an analogy. Let's say this is an "emotion". Now that you've experienced that "emotion", look at this: Clearly, this "emotion" and the one previously shown are not the same; however, this second one looks similar and might even remind you of the first. This is the idea of "music emotions" - the music that causes one to feel "sad" is merely triggering a memory of that emotion, not the actual emotion - and that applies to every feeling you'd have when you listen to music. It also explains why people enjoy listening to music that makes them "sad". Since it's technically not true sorrow, the experience of it is considered a happy one. http://csml.som.ohio-state.edu/Music829D/Notes/Negative.emotions.html People with deeper experiences involving the real emotions would then be drawn more to the music that stimulates them, as compared to those who cannot relate as much to the emotion. Aside from emotions, music also impacts a variety of different things Music Therapy --based on how music can access certain parts of the nervous system. This ability is put to use as a sort of mental treatment. playing music listening to music Listening to music is the primary focus of music therapy, which aims to help with mental and emotional problems of all intensity levels. Anxiety and stress are lowered whenever we listen to music - whether it is upbeat or soothing actually does not make much difference in its effect. This happens to individuals in daily life; when music is used as an actual healing technique, it does have the ability to improve neural health. It improves our immune systems. The beat of music, just as it lowers the levels of stress hormone, causes the brain to go into a state where it releases endorphins (a painkiller) and healing hormones. Cortisol: the stuff that makes you undergo stress. Listening to music makes this disappear and make people less stressed, even if only temporarily. Music therapy treats mostly everything that relates to the mind, which makes it particularly useful for problems such as ADD, depression, and Alzheimer's.
There is no limit to the mental issues music can treat, although no one knows why music is able to cure such problems. While getting rid of stress, almost all music has the effect of improving a good mood. dopamine -- the chemical that regulates the general feeling of happiness in the brain. Whenever something feels rewarding, dopamine is released and consequently makes one feel happy. Listening to music causes raised amounts of this. http://lifehacker.com/5865032/ http://www.omharmonics.com/blog/how-music-affects-the-brain/ http://science.yourdictionary.com/articles/how-does-music-affect-the-brain.html Music: considered universally as an irreplaceable art form. It's been around for as long as anyone can guess, but we still don't know the full story of how music can have such an impact on our lives. Music expresses thoughts, emotions, and cultural values. Some call it the "language of emotion" - universal. The idea behind music and memories (which is important in Alzheimer's) is similar to that of emotions: we associate certain emotions with certain melodies, and the same goes for memories. but! How music reminds us of our emotions is a reason it is so inherent in our lifestyle. It becomes something that we can relate to, and therefore a form of relief or escape. Listening to music helps us remember occurrences in our lives. Certain songs remind us of events that have happened to us, which associates songs with our own selves. They become of great significance when related to something important. Music is one of the things that keeps us happy and healthy. Many people rely on it to help boost a terrible mood or distract them from becoming stressed over work. It is a form of entertainment, escape, and healing. the impact on everyone's emotions, mental well-being, and general lifestyle Richel Qin, Principles of Engineering Period 4 do you like...sad? or happy? It is inevitable that music would be able to change the way you feel. We've all listened to sad songs and became sad; upbeat songs and became happier. The question we rarely ask is: why? Creating and playing any form of music is a way to communicate emotion and idea. Of course, the creation of music is important for others to discover and relate to. It's a common idea that both playing and listening to music brings people together. The communication of emotions and ideas through music is what becomes therapeutic. And while most can give a definite answer, others don't understand completely why music is so important to them. Although we still don't know the exact mechanisms behind how music directly affects us, that doesn't change the fact that it does. Music has been around too long for anyone to remember when it first started - it's been a part of the human lifestyle since just about "forever", making it something that everyone can find meaning in. It is shown that listening to specific kinds of music, while helping soothe someone's mood, can also improve productivity on a task while keeping him calm about it. Everyone depends on music in some form or another; so much so that we don't recognize how inherent it is in our culture and lives. With music therapy, humans have added more importance to music. We would now be beginning to find solutions to neurological problems that would otherwise likely remain unsolved.
