The Paradox of Emotional Dimensionality: The Effect of the Dimensionality of Audio Stimuli on the Brain’s Electrical Activity, a Neuroscience Study
I am passionate about understanding the human perceptions of art by using scientific correlations. For my research, I studied the mathematical structure of sounds that triggers selective emotions. I was able to prove that certain types of music affect the brain and that the responses may have an evolutionary and biological basis. My research can provide a new foundation to how music therapy can work in treating symptoms of mood, neurological, and anxiety disorders such as PTSD and Attention Deficit Disorder.
