Music and blood pressure
Music is an important part of many people’s lives. We may have a certain genera of music which we like to listen to when we want to relax, when we want to study, or when we want to celebrate. Equally true, music may pose a distraction for some, even causing discomfort. In this study, you will recruit subjects to listen to different musical styles and examine how it affects their blood pressure.
Blood pressure is the amount of pressure that blood puts on the walls of blood vessels as it travels through them. Blood pressure is comprised of two measurements, systolic and diastolic pressures. In the blood pressure reading 120/80 mmHG (normal blood pressure), the top number is the systolic, while the lower number is the diastolic.
