Abstract

Abstract The current study investigated the effects of background music and memory recall between men and women. One hypothesis is that music will enhance memory and participants will exhibit a higher memory score while listening to classical music than heavy metal rock music. The second hypothesis men will have a higher memory score overall. To investigate this, I recruited students from WOU to participate and complete a memory test using a list of words. Background music of classical and heavy metal rock was played to create different context of memory. Data will be analyzed using a 2 x 2 Analysis of Variance. Implications of the obtained findings and future directions will be discussed.
