Study the Effect of Background Music on Cognitive Memory
This paper studied on the relationship between cognitive memory and background music by 2 x 3 two-factor variables experiment. According to the habit whether the testees are used to listenning to background music, the author divided them into two groups. When the subjects are arranged in three different kinds of music scenes, the impact of different background music on testees’ cognitive memory differed. The results show that pure pop music disturbs all the two groups, that pure soft music improves the people who are used to background music but hinders the ones who are not, and that there is no significant difference between group under no music condition.
