Talk:Increased music appreciation
Definition Re: "Increased music appreciation can be described as an increased enjoyment of music" - I propose finding a synonym for the second use of "increased", purely for stylistic reasons. It would make better reading. I suggest "heightened" perhaps? --Corax (talk) 13:27, 11 December 2017 (CET)
Music processing involves visual capacities of the brain to separate acoustic and therefore spatial relationships of the sound perceived.
"Interestingly the T-Test showed significant (p < .025) Pre/Post-music-changes for all subjects in the right temporal cortex on Theta and the left rear occipital cortex on Alpha. The right temporal area is considered to be the dominant temporal area for auditory music processing and was found to change in other EEG-studies as well as the occipital cortex (Auzou et al., 1995; Bruggenwerth, Gutjahr, Kulka & Machleidt, 1994; David, Pfotenhauer, Birken & David, 1989a; Duffy, Bartels & Burchfiel, 1981; Konovalov & Otmakhova, 1984; Petsche, 1994; Petsche, Pockberger & Rappelsberger, 1987a; Walker, 1977). Music processing involves visual capacities of the brain to separate acoustic and therefore spatial relationships of the sound perceived. Observed changes in these areas suggest an altered scaling of acoustic percepts (Fachner, 2000). This enables a temporarily increased insight into the space between the notes. Changes in the temporal lobe EEG might represent changes in the hippocampus region as well. The hippocampus is found to host cannabinoid receptors and has a strong impact on selecting information (Joy et al., 1999). Furthermore, Theta waves have been correlated with hippocampus activity (Klimesch, 1996; Meador et al., 1991) during state specific perceptual tasks. Theta changes in the present study give evidence for supposing a change of auditory perspective and selection."
