Listening to 30 seconds of Mozart’s music could be effective for drug-resistant patients

The song from Mozart can be good for people with epilepsy that are resistant to medications.

According to a study published by Scientific Reports ensures that listening, for example, at least 30 seconds from sonata for two pianos D major it could be beneficial for those affected by the disease.

Listening to this particular sonata “may be associated” with less frequent peaks of electrical activity associated with epilepsy, something that had already been indicated previous studies.

The novelty is that the team of experts has managed to determine the minimum time that you have to do it and advance one hypothesis on the motives.

In addition, results from investigation also suggest that positive emotional responses to the sonata can contribute to their therapeutic effects.

The researchers hypothesized that spending those seconds listening to the musical piece can activate brain networks associated with positive emotional responses to music and regulated by the frontal cortex.

And if these networks are activated, they could cause the spikes in electrical activity associated with epilepsy among those with this disease and the drugs do not take effect on that organism.

For the investigation a electroencephalogram to measure electrical activity in brains from 16 adults with drug-resistant epilepsy while listening to a series of musical cuts from 15 or 90 seconds, including Mozart’s sonata.

It was discovered that only the music of Mozart could be associated with a average reduction of the 66,5% in the number of epilepsy-related electrical activity spikes throughout the brain.

The study indicates that these reductions were greater in the frontal cortices both left What right of the brain, which are the regions involved in the regulation of emotional responses.

It was also observed that when participants they listened to the end of long repetitive sections within the sonata, a type of electrical activity known as theta it increased in their frontal cortices. Something they had already noticed previous researchers.
