Baroque Music This kind of soothing, rhythmic music is intended for inducing a state of relaxed alertness on the learner. This method is supposed to improve recalling performance by at least 25%. Why Baroque music? Experiments by Lozanov and his successors in both Europe and America showed that the following criteria have to be met by a music work to be useful for suggestopedic learning: "Largo" tempo Its tempo must be approx. 60 M.M. (60 beats/min). Instrumental music Voices (even choirs) and instruments standing out against the orchestra are likely to distract the student. Regular patterns Baroque works are often made up by rhythmic and melodic variations on a theme, following a somewhat mathematical pattern.

Que fabrique notre cerveau lorsque nous dormons ? - Science-et-vie.com © Shonakagome / Flick / CC BY 2.0 Pendant que nous dormons, le cerveau fabrique... des connexions neuronales ! Preuve en a été donnée en 2014, lorsqu'une équipe de chercheurs chinois et américains de l'université de médecine de New York a manipulé génétiquement des souris pour que leurs neurones expriment une protéine fluorescente permettant d'observer en direct les remodelages qui se produisent dans leur cerveau. Des nouvelles connexions fixent l'apprentissage Ils ont ensuite appris aux rongeurs une nouvelle acrobatie : courir sur une tige en rotation et en accélération. Pour vérifier l'impact du sommeil sur la consolidation de ce nouvel apprentissage, les scientifiques ont séparé les souris en deux groupes : le premier pouvait dormir sept heures, tandis que le second était tenu éveillé durant la même période.

Boost Brain Power with These Basic Foods Vibrotactile Presentation of Musical Notes to the Glabrous Skin for Adults with Normal Hearing or a Hearing Impairment: Thresholds, Dynamic Range and High-Frequency Perception Abstract Presentation of music as vibration to the skin has the potential to facilitate interaction between musicians with hearing impairments and other musicians during group performance. Vibrotactile thresholds have been determined to assess the potential for vibrotactile presentation of music to the glabrous skin of the fingertip, forefoot and heel.

Sound Suggestions: Relax with the Classics: Volume 1 or 2, The Four Seasons, Baroque Music for Learning and Relaxation, Classical Harmonies (Mozart) For low-energy times of day, play upbeat Mozart while students are reading or writing to help them stay energized and interested. Sound Suggestions: Mozart Effect for Children: Tune Up Your Mind, Mozart Effect for Children: Mozart to Go, Mozart Effect for Children: Mozart in Motion, Mozart Effect: Strengthen the Mind, Mozart Effect for Children: Playtime to Sleepy Time (selections 1-4) Play focus music quietly in the background to hold students' attention while working at learning centers or on projects. Play music to refocus attention. Play an upbeat selection of music during a break time to refresh and re-energize.

ADDICTION au TABAC: L’effet nicotine, aussi une question de conviction Actualité publiée il y a 5 jours Frontiers in Psychiatry Les croyances aussi puissantes que les substances sur le cerveau ? Cette étude de l’Université du Texas à Dallas, publiée dans la revue dans Frontiers in Psychiatry montre en tous cas, que les convictions sur les effets de la nicotine influencent aussi les envies de fumer et l’addiction au tabac. En synthèse, de « vrais » fumeurs ne satisfont pas leur besoin de fumer avec une cigarette, il faut qu’ils soient également convaincus qu’elle contient bien sa dose de nicotine pour être satisfaits. 1. une cigarette placebo, présentée comme une vraie cigarette avec de la nicotine, 2. une vraie cigarette avec de la nicotine mais présentée comme sans nicotine, 3. une vraie cigarette avec de la nicotine et présentée comme une vraie cigarette avec nicotine, 4. une cigarette présentée sans nicotine et en effet, un vrai placebo. L’envie de fumer des participants a été évaluée avant de fumer la cigarette et après la tâche. Addictions

Perception of ‘Back-Channeling’ Nonverbal Feedback in Musical Duo Improvisation Abstract In witnessing face-to-face conversation, observers perceive authentic communication according to the social contingency of nonverbal feedback cues (‘back-channeling’) by non-speaking interactors. The current study investigated the generality of this function by focusing on nonverbal communication in musical improvisation. A perceptual experiment was conducted to test whether observers can reliably identify genuine versus fake (mismatched) duos from musicians’ nonverbal cues, and how this judgement is affected by observers’ musical background and rhythm perception skill. Twenty-four musicians were recruited to perform duo improvisations, which included solo episodes, in two styles: standard jazz (where rhythm is based on a regular pulse) or free improvisation (where rhythm is non-pulsed).

The Secret to Not Caring What People Think Whether it is becoming plugged into our identity, quitting alcohol or even becoming more confident, our worry of what people think can really affect us. From the jobs we choose, to the people we date and the risks we take, we often limit our actions through fear of criticism or judgment from others. This is a serious issue, and a problem many people experience, therefore I’ve taken my personal experience and the advice of others to reveal the secrets to not caring what people think. Why we Care what people Think First of all, I want to say that sometimes caring what people think is not a bad idea; the part of our mind that produces this fear is often in place to protect us. I’ve spent months trying to understand why we care what people think, and as (surprisingly) usual, the answer is relatively simple and the heart of what this website is about. What people say about you is none of your business- Sean Stephenson Of course, your identity is not what people think of you, it is just…you. 1.

Intra- and Inter-Brain Synchronization during Musical Improvisation on the Guitar Abstract Humans interact with the environment through sensory and motor acts. Some of these interactions require synchronization among two or more individuals. Multiple-trial designs, which we have used in past work to study interbrain synchronization in the course of joint action, constrain the range of observable interactions. To overcome the limitations of multiple-trial designs, we conducted single-trial analyses of electroencephalography (EEG) signals recorded from eight pairs of guitarists engaged in musical improvisation. We identified hyper-brain networks based on a complex interplay of different frequencies.

Characteristics of Musical Keys "Today many musicians claim to hear the different characteristics very clearly, and associate them with the emotional quality of the music. They will tell us that music played in the "open" key of C major---with neither flats nor sharps in the key signature---sounds strong and virile; played in the key of G, with one sharp, it sounds brighter and lighter; in D, with two sharps, even more so; and so on. Every additional sharp in the key signature is supposed to add to the brightness and sparkle of the music, while every flat contributes softness, pensiveness, and even melancholy. Color and musical pitch Pitch, colour, Scriabian, and others by Charles E. This site includes Scribians, The Rosicrucian Order's, and Charles Fourier's color charts for musical pitches.
