Background: Music has been used for therapeutic purposes since the beginning of cultural history. However, despite numerous descriptions of beneficial effects, the precise mechanisms by which music may improve human well‐being remain unclear. Methods: We conducted a randomized study in ten critically ill patients to identify mechanisms of music‐induced relaxation using a special selection of slow movements of Mozart's piano sonatas. These sonatas were analyzed for compositional elements of… Expand

The impact of music on hypermetabolism in critical illness
TLDR
Music may play an important role as an adjunct therapy in critical care, however, further studies are necessary to elucidate how music can be further integrated clinically and the precise underlying mechanisms of its beneficial effects. Expand
The psychoneuroimmunology of music: modulation of psychological state, stress levels and immune response through participatory interventions
Research into the health benefits of music has rapidly expanded over the last decade with recent studies showing early evidence of the ability of music to alter biomarkers of the neurochemical andExpand
The psychoneuroimmunological effects of music: A systematic review and a new model
TLDR
A new model is presented which provides a framework for developing a taxonomy of musical and stress-related variables in research design, and tracing the broad pathways that are involved in its influence on the body. Expand
The impact of music on metabolism.
TLDR
The purpose of this article is to summarize the most current understanding of the mechanisms by which music affects the metabolic responses in the context of potential applications. Expand
Musical Therapy with Balinese Flute Increased Cognitive Function, Brain-derived Neurotrophic Factor Serum Levels, and Decreased Interleukin-6 Serum Levels among the Elderly in West Denpasar Primary Health Clinic
TLDR
Balinese traditional flute composition was proven to be non-inferior when compared with Western classical composition as it improved mainly memory domain accompanied by increasing BDNF and decreased IL-6 levels. Expand
Sedative effects of Mozart's music in the critically ill: enjoy the hormonal symphony.
TLDR
It is proposed that music may exert its sedative effects by a neurohumoral pathway involving interactions between the hypothalamo-pituitary axis and the adrenal medulla via mediators of the unspecific immune system. Expand

AbstractResearch on the effects of music exposure on the release of biochemical messengers is an expanding field. The importanceof understanding the influence of music on messenger production is aExpand
Effects of Music Listening on Cortisol Levels and Propofol Consumption during Spinal Anesthesia
TLDR
The data show that listening to music during surgery under regional anesthesia has effects on cortisol levels (reflecting stress-reducing effects) and reduces sedative requirements to reach light sedation. Expand

TLDR
Live music performed with a saxophone could be introduced in oncology care to improve the oxygen saturation and mood in cancer patients. Expand

TLDR
Pilot study provides support that a brief self-administered CD hypnosis stress reduction program can modify a physiological measure of inflammation (IL-6), and improve coping and resilience in the face of work and life stress. Expand

Music alters constitutively expressed opiate and cytokine processes in listeners.
TLDR
It appears that music-listeners exhibit plasma signal molecule changes consistent with the physiological changes associated with the reported actions of music, i.e, lower blood pressure. Expand

TLDR
Investigation of the possible combination of emotional and endocrine changes in response to techno-music found personality variables as predictors of respective changes correlated negatively with harm avoidance scores and positively with the novelty-seeking temperament score on the Cloninger scale.

The Effect of Music on the Neurohormonal Stress Response to Surgery Under General Anesthesia
TLDR
In conclusion, it is concluded that a significant effect of intraoperative music on surgical stress when used under general anesthesia cannot be demonstrated. Expand
Musik bei der Gastroskopie.
TLDR
The study showed the rise in the plasma levels of the stress hormones ACTH and cortisol to be significantly lower under the influence of music, while the plasma adrenalin and noradrenaline levels before and after gastroscopy were virtually unchanged in both groups. Expand
Effect of the growth hormone-releasing hormone [GHRH(1-44)NH2] on IL-6 and IL-8 secretion from human peripheral blood mononuclear cells in vitro.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that GHRH in vitro modulates IL-6 secretion from the human peripheral blood mononuclear cells, without any significant effect on IL-8 secretion. Expand
The influence of aging and sex hormones on expression of growth hormone-releasing hormone in the human immune system.
TLDR
Results suggest a role for GHRH as a local immune modulator and in the pathophysiology of immunosenescence and immune cell tumors and demonstrates that the expression of immune G HRH is dynamic, and therefore likely to be regulated. Expand
Anxiolytic effect of music depends on ovarian steroid in female mice
TLDR
Exposure to music reduces anxiety levels, and ovarian steroids, mainly progesterone, may be involved in the anxiolytic effect of music observed in female mice. Expand
Music and Preoperative Anxiety: A Randomized, Controlled Study
TLDR
Under the conditions of this study, patients who listened to music before surgery reported lower levels of state anxiety, and Physiological outcomes did not differ, however, between the two study groups. Expand
The Sedative and Analgesic Sparing Effect of Music
TLDR
Use of intraoperative music in awake patients decreases patient‐controlled sedative and analgesic requirements, which could be caused by elimination of ambient operating room noise and not by the effects of music. Expand
Role of the cytokines in the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal and gonadal axes.
TLDR
Cytokines are soluble mediators of immune function that also regulate several endocrine systems and affect via paracrine or autocrine pathways both hormone secretion from, and possibly cellular differentiation within, endocrine tissues. Expand
