Classical music reactivates memories
Today’s Video of the Day from the National Science Foundation (NSF) describes how classical music can help students perform better on a test.
Researchers at Baylor University found that college students who listened to classical music during a lecture, and again during sleep, substantially improved their test scores.
The study revealed that targeting memory reactivation (TMR) of classical music by Beethoven, Chopin, and Vivaldi strengthened existing memories of lecture materials during deep sleep.
The research was funded by NSF.
