Mozart Vs Rauscher

Satisfactory Essays
In 1993 Rauscher et al listened to Mozart's sonata for two pianos (10 minutes) and claimed that it significantly improved his reasoning skills more than listening to relaxation instructions that are designed to lower blood pressure. It is criticized that this is because of the “enjoyment arousal” connected with this particular music.
