The medscape link is a dead end unfortunately for me too Shelley, but I wanted to comment on the 'livescience' link you posted (I reposted it below):

http://www.livescience.com/health/09...sic-brain.html

NICE LINK! The article communicated very nicely to those of us who DON'T have a doctorate in scientific terminology (IMHO of course!).
I read along...intrigued the whole way!
I came away saying:

  • "okay, if you're telling me the findings seem to indicate an apparently 'sensitive time for development' in kids is 10-13 years of age...then I must concur 100%! Seriously, when do young 'rockers' decide to start 'shredding'?"
  • "maybe passive music listening doesn't directly increase IQ (to simplify the just of one of the points here)...but it probably calms the subject down and enhances the ability to learn!"
Very nice find Shelley! Thanks!

Okay, found this interesting!....

My father found this article about how simple SPEECH can possibly affect emotions...which in turn could affect stress, right?...thereby lowering one's threshold I suspect.

Music and Speech Share a Code...

I found it very interesting!

Peace,
Speber

Hi Speber. Thanks. Did you know that the minor third is also used as the communicative pitch range for MIT (Melodic Intonation Therapy) carried out with patients who have lost the power of speech through head injury. This makes it possible for them to communicate with those around as it is using the singing half of the brain by producing the words in pitch within the minor third interval. Speak soon, and have a great day.

WOW, Rocketman,

That is amazing! I bet someday scientists will turn it into a translation system, with a computer that speaks the person's intended thoughts.

Super cool.

I Just listened to John Denver's Leaving On A Jet Plane. That is one of my favorite songs. Thank you Speber.

Somber - by P!nk
always makes me feel better after soemthing happens. Even if only a little. Soemthing about being safe above everything and happy just makes seizures seem a little less scary for me.

Interesting. My tonic/clonic seizure was preceded by loud music and my partials start with auditory hallucinations - music or a musical tone to a voice. I assume that I am triggered by sound. Wonder if anyone else who deals with that issue can find solace in music as something that makes them feel better. Also, how do you get the music on so fast if a seizure is coming?
