Music Psychology Study
  • Hi everyone,

    I'm a graduate student running a study on the effect of music on language processing. If anybody has 10-15 minutes spare, i would be really grateful if you could listen to some music clips and rate them for their emotional content. It's mostly film music with a few other odds and ends mixed in.

    The survey is at

    There is the opportunity to enter a draw for a £30 (or local equivalent) amazon voucher at the end.

    Many thanks

  • Violin James,

    Excuse my ignorance, but is the music or the human being the test subject in this case?

    Chris, I expect that the answer is: both.

  • Dear Chris and chonak,

    Thanks for your interest in the study. At this stage, it's the music that is of interest. Once the clips that give the clearest examples of positive/negative and high/low arousal are identified, I'll use those as stimuli in studies that look more at people and the brain.

    Thanks again
