Thank You For the Music! a Working Memory Examination of the Effect of Musical Elements on Verbal Learning
This research investigates how specific elements of background music affect learning. We study the interactive effects of vocal versus instrumental music with other musical elements and show that under specific conditions, different music types may both inhibit or enhance verbal learning. These findings are explained using working memory theory.
