Sound sensations and emotions

Since immemorial times throughout history, many studies have shown the effect that musical sounds exert on the human being in his way of acting and expressing his emotions.

Studies have been published in which a post-mortem analysis has been carried out, comparing brains that during their lives were stimulated musically and brains that by distance with civilization in very few opportunities. These comparative studies allowed to find notorious differences.

A macro and microscopic level between the brains of musicians and people who did not like music; the differences are focused specifically on the body that the body presents the study group which makes “definitely the brain absorb the music like a sponge” (Dr. Gottfried Achlaug Beth Israel Medical Center of Boston)

There is a direct relationship between the musical stimulation in the areas of the frontal cerebral cortex and the early development of the coordination of the upper limbs if the stimulation is done before seven (7) years of age. (Dr. Frances Rauscher, University of Wisconsin.)

Recent studies in the psychiatric units of the Universities of Columbia and New York, showed that the stimulation through the uterine tissue with sounds coming from the voice of the parents, alter the fetal heart rate.

The same results were observed when these fetuses were stimulated with music by Vivaldi or Mozart. In the same way, experimentally and in a comparative way, contrary effects have been found to the aforementioned (in this case very unpleasant) if the type of stimulus is made with strident sounds or Rock music. (Report presented by E.J: Mundell – Health Day reporter).

It is known as the intense emotions of a pregnant mother, her mood changes, feelings of happiness and in general all her sensations generate in the fetus a memory depending on the type and amount of excited neurotransmitter. This memory means that in the future any stimulus that releases similar neurotransmitters in equal concentrations will generate pleasant memories, which leads to demonstrating that their sensations and emotions evoked by sound stimulation determine to relive pleasant moments of their intrauterine life.

Canadian studies show how the IQ of children stimulated in an appropriate way with musical sounds and rhythms is positively affected, the well-known Mozart effect, and its increase in the brain areas that have a response related to spatial intelligence.

In conclusion:

The sounds and rhythms have always played an important role in the brain stimulation of the listeners, reflected in the learning and communication of the culture between the ethnic groups.

The pleasure of sharing pleasant sounds generates connections between parents and children, between families and between peoples.

To the extent that those sounds and those rhythms surround the environment stimulate the brain properly and early; generating a pleasurable and rewarding response within the learning experience; therefore they will feed the imagination and creativity of the human being, regardless of their social class, creed, religion or political status.

For all the above “Music generates a power that goes beyond words; and that is precisely what is sought in this presentation of music to see and ways to listen “Germ├ín Eduardo Sabogal Sabogal.
