Music-induced Emotions and Musical Regulation and Emotion Improvement Based on EEG Technology

Xiaoling Wu, Guodong Sun


Musical stimulation can induce emotions as well as adjust and improve emotions, however, for scientific experimental researches on music-induced emotions and music regulation and emotion improvement, it’s not enough just to give proof through scientific experiments, what is more important is further explanation and verification. Further, it is to study in-detail of the impact of music stimuli on the brain and neural mechanism, and how this impact effects the physiological function system of the brain, thus explaining the physiological function system of the human brain. Under the stimulating effect of music, the possible functional changes and the possible outcomes can be used to study the role of music in the clinical treatment and its possible function of musical neurological medical interventions. In this paper, the music fragments of four kinds of emotions "soothing", "happy", "sorrowful", and "nervous" are selected as stimuli, the EEG is recorded synchronously and analysis is conducted from aspects of brain regions, emotional intensity, and polarity etc.
