Experience has shown that therapy using music for therapeutic purposes has certain effects on neuropsychiatric disorders (both functional and organic disorders). However, the mechanisms of action underlying music therapy remain unknown, and scientific clarification has not advanced. While that study disproved the Mozart effect, the effects of music on the human body and mind were not disproved. In fact, more scientific studies on music have been conducted in recent years, mainly in the field of… Expand
Music Therapy: A Modalities to Consider During Rehabilitation of Neurological Patients
TLDR
The neurochemical changes that occur after listening to music not only lessen the stress by reducing endorphin and cortisol level regulated by hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis but also influences motivation and happiness by regulation of dopamine and opioids. Expand
Mozart Effect and its clinical applications: a review.
TLDR
This review summarizes the recent scientific literature on the Mozart Effect and defines specific protocols in which music helps clinicians in recuperating patients and in improving their quality of life. Expand
Mozart, Music and Medicine
TLDR
There is moderate but not altogether convincing evidence that listening to known and liked music helps to decrease the burden of a disease and enhances the immune system by modifying stress. Expand

A preliminary study examining the effect of NMT in cognitive rehabilitation has reported promising results in improving executive functions along with improvement in emotional adjustment and decreasing depression and anxiety following TBI. Expand
Role of sound stimulation in reprogramming brain connectivity
TLDR
The molecular mechanisms of various changes in the hippocampus following sound stimulation to effect neurogenesis, learning and memory are described and it becomes imperative to examine in detail the possible ameliorating effects of prenatal sound stimulation in existing animal models of various psychiatric disorders, such as autism.

The effect of music performance on the transcriptome of professional musicians
TLDR
This study investigated the effect of music performance on the genome-wide peripheral blood transcriptome of professional musicians by analyzing the transcriptional responses after a 2-hr concert performance and after a ‘music-free' control session, providing evidence for the candidate genes and molecular mechanisms underlying music performance. Expand
Influence of music on steroid hormones and the relationship between receptor polymorphisms and musical ability: a pilot study
TLDR
This is the first study conducted in humans to analyze the relationships between the AR gene, T levels, and musical ability and there was a positive relationship with the repeat length, although it was not significant. Expand
Benefits in Alzheimer's Disease of Sensory and Multisensory Stimulation.
TLDR
Results show sensory stimulations can effectively ameliorate the pathology of AD, arouse memory, and improve cognition and behaviors, and its potential mechanism and stimulation parameters need to be explored and improved. Expand
