Speech entered here on left side OCCIPITAL LOBE
Visual processing PARIETAL LOBE
Sense of direction (spatial orientation)
Recognition Auditory cortex processes the pitch and volume of music
Frontal lobe and parietal lobe process the rhythm of music
Temporal lobe processes the tone of the music
Cerebellum processes the rhythm Arteries Carry blood away from the heart to the rest of the body
Oxygenated blood Veins Carry blood to the heart from the rest of the body
De-oxygenated blood Heart Keeps blood pumping throughout the body Heart Rate A heart rate is the speed at which a heart beats. When resting, your heart rate decreases
When exercising, your heart rate increases Music affects your heart rate depending on the tempo of the music. LEFT

Muscle Tone Music stimulates the visual cortex of the brain, which cause us to conjure up images that match up with the music we are listening to. The temporal lobe of the brain is one of the main parts of the brain that associates with music. The temporal lobe is also the part of the brain that deals with long-term memory. When listening to music, we are able to remember it easily, whether it be the beat, lyrics or rhythm. If we associate a song to a memory, listening to the song could help to trigger the memory. Music affects our emotions by using the chemicals in our body, dependent on the tempo, melody, and even the phrasing of a song. For example, upbeat music stimulates the part of the brain that releases dopamine, the chemical released when exercising and eating. When listening to faster, upbeat music, the heart rate, as well as the breathing rate and blood pressure, increase. When listening to slow, meditating music, the heart rate, as well as the breathing rate and blood pressure, decrease. Due to its effects on heart rate, music is used as a type of therapy for physical and stress-relieving purposes, as well as physical rehabilitation. Music is used to help with physical wellness, pain alleviation and the reduction of high blood pressure. A decrease in heart rate means that the amount of oxygen delivered to the cells is also decreased. This is because the cells don't require as much oxygen to function when the body is in a relaxed state. An increase in heart rate means that the amount of oxygen delivered to the cells is also increased. This is because the cells need more oxygen for energy production. Music Therapy
