Listening to classical music modulates genes that are responsible for brain functions

Listening to classical music modulates genes that are responsible for brain functions | Psicología Positiva, Felicidad y Bienestar. Positive Psychology,Happiness & Wellbeing | Scoop.it
Although listening to music is common in all societies, the biological determinants of listening to music are largely unknown. According to a new study, listening to classical music enhanced the activity of genes involved in dopamine secretion and transport, synaptic neurotransmission, learning and memory, and down-regulated the genes mediating neurodegeneration. Several of the up-regulated genes were known to be responsible for song learning and singing in songbirds, suggesting a common evolutionary background of sound perception across species.
