Our insight

Music and sound reduce negative effects

Several studies show that stimulating music increases heart rate, while calm music lowers it. Canadian studies have shown that levels of the stress hormone cortisol decreased significantly when participants listened to the 'right' music.

 

 

Music and sound enhance positive effects

Scientific studies show that:

  • The brain follows the rhythm of music, which can explain music's calming effect.

  • The brain releases dopamine when hearing the right music.

  • Other substances affecting stress, pain, motivation, and emotions are also released by listening to music.
