The purpose of this study was to examine biochemical and galvanic skin responses to music stimuli. Specifically, 30 university biology and 30 music students' plasma levels of norepinephrine and cortisol and their galvanic skin responses were measured before and after listening to two different musical selections, one of which was preferred (liked) by the(More)
The purpose of this study was to examine biochemical and physiological responses to musical stimuli. Specifically, university music and biology students' plasma levels of norepinephrine, endorphin, and cortisol, and their galvanic skin responses were measured before and after listening to two different musical selections in an anechoic chamber and during(More)
Clear-cut logging rapidly affects stream macroinvertebrates through substantial alteration of terrestrial-aquatic resource linkages; however, lesser known are the long-term influences of forest succession on benthic macroinvertebrate assemblages, which play key roles in stream ecosystem function. We compared secondary production and standing crops of(More)
Physiological responses associated with the ratings of musical stimuli were investigated. For 101 university music and biology students in the experimental group, heart rate, blood pressure, and finger temperature were measured before and after listening to about 10 min. of music (Venus and Jupiter from Holst's The Planets) in an anechoic chamber. They also(More)
Learning: Undergraduate The long-term increase in the number of Biological Sciences majors continued in 2008; the total number of majors has risen by 40% since 2002. Coupled with faculty retirements and a slow pace of faculty hiring, this trend continues to place pressures on meeting teaching needs. Despite the pressures, many Biological Sciences majors(More)
