CHST member gave a virtual talk to the Guru Nanak Dev Engineering College, Bidar, Karnataka, India on the 9th of July 2020


The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of music stimuli on human brain using EEG. The study comprises a short term and a long term experiment. Two types of music stimuli; favorite music (preferred music of the participating subjects) and relaxing music (composed of alpha binaural beats) are used. Assessment of the soothing effects of music on human brain is done by analyzing different features; absolute power in the alpha band, approximate entropy, sample entropy and frontal asymmetry using EEG recordings. The results from the study indicate that relaxing music has more soothing effects on the human brain than the favorite music.
