Whether you be Einstein? (Tell me what you listen to, and I will say what is your IQ)


You're young, you think you are advanced, night clubs - the best place to hang out after school or work. After - feeling good time spent, but that's fresh and clear thinking, as the influx of new strength and energy are observed.

Did you know that the modern electronic music, as well as rock, psychologists refer to aggressive non-medicated Narcotic Drugs (the latter on the body there is no need to explain)? 

Just a few facts 

1. Scientists Center for Neuroscience, University of California tested students from 36 colleges, trying to determine their level of intellectual development. Within ten minutes of the test, students listened to a Mozart sonata for two pianos in C major K. 488.Repeated tests immediately after hearing showed an increase in IQ scores at 8-9.

True, after about 15 minutes of data back to the previous level, but this fact has allowed scientists to assume that immortal music was the cause temporary intellectual growth. Other scientists involved in such studies, also believe in the magical power of music to listen to during regular cause sustained improvement in IQ.

One of the researchers of the phenomenon of music effect, Gordon Shaw, suggested that complex music somehow nourishes and parts of the brain responsible for abstract thinking - departments, not directly related to the perception of sounds and melodies. 

2. Bulgarian psychologist Georgi Lozanov and his colleague Dr. Alec Novakova doing research, trying to determine the extent to which music affects the learning process.

By this time, American scientists Lynn Cooper and Erickson has found that people who listen to the sound of the metronome rhythm of 60 beats per minute, comes the "alpha state" - ideal for learning and memory.

Unaware of this fact, Lausanne and Novakov quite independently made a similar discovery, but using the slow Baroque music with rhythmic size of 60-64 cycles per minute. Baroque genre was very popular in Europe from 1600 to 1750.

His popularity was the death of one of the most outstanding composers and performers - Johann Sebastian Bach. For Baroque music is characterized by a rich palette of sounds scales and precise rhythm. Lozanov and Novak discovered that under the influence of Baroque music information is received and absorbed as efficiently as in the training of a dream.

This discovery soon led to the development of a new method. Under its terms, the information - for example, the sentence, - is an interval of four seconds on the background of baroque music in the rhythm of 60 beats per minute. Initial results have shown that students learn from 60 to 500 foreign words a day.

Specialists from the University of Iowa decided to test the proposed method, and soon achieved success: the background music from the Baroque experiment participants saw an increase in retention by 26%, and the learning rate - 24%. 

3. According to Dr. Alfred Tomatis, a member of the French Academy of Medicine, the key role played by the brain in elektropodzaryadke ears.

When an electrical potential of the brain begins to fade, we feel tired and Tupe eyes. Like batteries, brain cells must be recharged from time to time.

Tomatis discovered that one way to recharge is to listen high-frequency sounds - 5000-8000 Hz. According to Tomatis, vibration Carty cells - hair cells of the inner ear - acts as a kind of generator cord.

Through many years of analysis Tomatis found that Mozart's music has the greatest number of the desired frequency range of sounds, well, hard rock, and - the smallest. It also recommends that in order to recharge the brain baroque music and Gregorian chants.

PS Albert Einstein first picked up the violin at the age of six. By the time he was 14, he played the Beethoven sonatas and Mozart, and the long hours improvising on the piano.

Throughout his life, Einstein remained a passionate violinist, turning to music during creative stagnation. On his passion for music and physics, he said: "Both of them have the same source and complement each other ..." It is possible that the unusually powerful intellect of Einstein is the result of the love of the classics.
