What exactly is the Mozart Effect? Since 1990 this phenomenon has become an area of scientific research, inquiry, speculation and misinformation. In the following series of lessons and videos, I will take you on an educational tour of how a research paper out of UC Irvine in California gave rise to the term “The Mozart Effect” and the correlation that “Music Makes You Smarter” by listening to classical music. A little over 20 years since the science research publication “Music & Spatial Task Performance”, we’ve learned plenty more on this phenomenon, our brains and the interesting effect that music has on our brains.
Does music really make us smarter? That question is subjectively wide and can lead to many different answers. We need to examine what exactly is this phenomena to become better informed and not fall for pseudo science or table talk that passes as science and leads to misinformation, personal decisions or policy creation that can negatively effect us.
