The study reports the effect of two different types of Hindustani music which are supposed to evoke contrasting emotions on brain activity using Electroencephalography (EEG) data. Two different sets of Hindustani music raga clips of contrasting emotion (romantic/sorrow) were used in the study. EEG was performed on five male subjects while they listened to(More)
A basic and one of the oldest socio-cognitive domains of the human species is music. Listening to music regularly helps keep the neurons and synapses more active. Neurological studies have identified that music is a valuable tool for evaluating the brain system. It has been observed that different parts of the brain are involved in processing music. They(More)
In this work we have tried to quantify and categorize the emotional appraisal of 8 cross-cultural instrumental clips with the help of neurocognitive physics approach. Human response data is taken for 70 respondents from which the emotional appraisal for a particular musical clip is standardized. EEG is taken for 5 normal patients and response for different(More)
The present study reports interesting findings in regard to emotional arousal based activities while listening to two Hindustani classical ragas of contrast emotion. EEG data was taken on 5 naïve listeners while they listened to two ragas — Bahar and Mia ki Malhar which are conventionally known to portray contrast emotions. The EEG data were(More)
Indian twin drums mainly bayan and dayan (tabla) are the most important percussion instruments in India popularly used for keeping rhythm. It is a twin percussion/drum instrument of which the right hand drum is called dayan and the left hand drum is called bayan. Tabla strokes are commonly called as `bol', constitutes a series of syllables. In this study we(More)
The term "gestalt" has been widely used in the field of psychology which defined the perception of human mind to group any object not in part but as a 'unified' whole. Music in general is polytonic i.e. a combination of a number of pure tones (frequencies) mixed together in a manner that sounds harmonius. The study of human brain response due to different(More)
Since the start of Indian cinema, a number of films have been made where a particular song is based on a certain raga. These songs have been taking a major role in spreading the essence of classical music to the common people, who have no formal exposure to classical music. In this paper, we look to explore what are the particular features of a certain raga(More)

This percussion instrument consists of two drums played by two hands, structurally different and produces different harmonic sounds. Earlier work has done labeling tabla(More)
The electrical activity of the human brain arising from the effect of listening to music has been recorded with the help of EEG recordings in different electrodes. The non-linear EEG signals arising from various lobes of the brain has been studied with the help of a robust technique called Multifractal Detrended Fluctuation Analysis (MFDFA). The presence of(More)
The term jitter and shimmer has long been used in the domain of speech and acoustic signal analysis as a parameter for speaker identification and other prosodic features. In this study, we look forward to use the same parameters in neural domain to identify and categorize emotional cues in different musical clips. For this, we chose two ragas of Hindustani(More)
