Researching the Mozart effect


The Noord Nederlands Orkest of Groningen plans to participate in scientific research into the Mozart effect together with the Univeristy of Groningen.

The Mozart effect is a theory that claims to boost one’s IQ (and that of children) by listening to and/or playing Mozart. During an upcoming concert, the audience’s brain activity is going to be measured, as part of an experiment.

There are all kinds of serious studies on why listening to music is good for your brain, but then the idea that it increases intelligence is controversial at best.

Although I love Mozart, I preferred to go to Salzburg and check him out in person.
