Listen to this music for X minutes to observe Y result. Is there something like that that has been demonstrated to work for general public?
The only example of an experiment that is similar that attempted to find out that I could find is: http://www.zlab.mcgill.ca/home.html
Music, an abstract stimulus, can arouse feelings of euphoria and craving, similar to tangible rewards that involve the striatal dopaminergic system. Using the neurochemical specificity of [11C]raclopride positron emission tomography (PET) scanning, combined with psychophysiological measures of autonomic nervous system activity, we provide direct evidence for endogenous dopamine release in the striatum at peak emotional arousal during music listening.
I know that there's a field of psychology called music therapy that attempts to help people with music. But from what I hear, people's responses to music are hard to quantify and are very subjective. I'm interested if there's a music track out there that has been demonstrated to "entrain" brain activity and shift it from one state to another. That is psychoactive music that has been developed not to express an emotion of the artist, but for the sole purpose of changing cognition and consciousness.
