  title={The effects of music tempo on memory performance using maintenance rehearsal and imagery},
  author={Qiu Ting Chie and K. Karthigeyan},
The aim of the study was to examine the effect of music tempo on memory performance when different learning strategies, namely, maintenance rehearsal and imagery are used. A mixed model design experiment was conducted on a total of 120 (37 male and 83 female) participants. Participants were presented two word lists under three music tempo conditions (slow ? 60 bpm, optimum ? 120 bpm, fast ? 165 bpm) and a control condition, using either maintenance rehearsal or imagery in sequential order.
