How does music affect you?



How do your brainwaves resonate with the beat of music? And why?

It’s kind of hard to believe that your brainwaves resonate with the beat of music, causing your breathing and heartbeat to slow or accelerate. I don’t know why and how, and I want to know!

How does ‘pleasant’/ a certain kind of music cause a boost of serotonin?

How can a particular kind of music (i.e. soundwaves) affect your brain in a way that it produces serotonin? It seems crazy that certain types of sound waves can affect you in a way that your body produces a hormone that gives you a ‘good feeling’. It’s so interesting!

Why does processing music involve both hemispheres of the brain? 

What makes music so special that it requires the usage of both hemispheres of the brain? Not many daily activities require the usage of both hemispheres, but processing music does. I love listening to music and would like to know what’s going on in my brain while I’m listening.

 How does sound of a certain amount of volume affect us in such a way that our mental and physical reaction time is slowed?

I kind of have an idea why our reaction time is slowed but I’m not sure, and it’s good to know that loud music could be used against you, and how.

How can music help in a therapeutic way?

It really seems incredible that music can help someone with Alzheimer’s or dementia recover lost memories and how music can help people who are stressed, relax. I would like to know how much music helps in a therapeutic way. It seems really interesting.

– What happens to sound waves of music in the brain? How are they registered?

With the other questions I’ve already gone into specifics, but it’s good to know how your brain actually registers music before it boosts serotonin e.g. I want a good picture of what is happening in the brain and with this question the other questions may be easier to answer.


One thought on “Mindmapping en aangescherpte vragen

  1. Dag Claire, Je hebt je onderwerp goed toe weten te spitsen, hier ontstaat een duidelijke focus. De enige vraag die er voor mij wat buiten valt is de therapeutische vraag – de rest is allemaal wat algemener, geldend voor iedereen, maar de therapeutische is specifieker. Je hebt maar een minuut – daarom is het belangrijk om goed op je focus te letten. Je hoeft de vraag nog niet meteen weg te gooien, kijk hoe ver je ermee komt, maar wees je hier bewust van.
