Six years ago scientists reported that listening to Mozart made people smarter. But last summer a new study failed to reproduce the results from the first, disappointing waves of music fans. A closer look, though, “shows that Mozart’s music does have a profound effect on the brain, though no one knows why. Rats raised on Mozart run through mazes faster and more accurately. People with Alzheimer’s disease function more normally if they listen to Mozart; the music even reduces the severity of epileptic seizures.” – Toronto Globe and Mail
