Multitasking: listening to music while studying

Multitasking is not a foreign word. But, what is the exact definition of multitasking? Multitasking is defined as doing two or more things at a certain period of time The term originates from computer science, where it refers to handling parallel processes that require the same resources In this video, we will be talking about Multitasking: listening to music while studying. Music often accompanied our lives in different ways. Many people listen to music in our day to day activities which includes, driving and walking. In the 21st century, smartphones and portable players have made it even easier for us to listen to music, at any time of the day. In a survey of 142 participants, it is found that 90% of students listen to music while studying. In another survey of 150 students, 77% of those who listened to music believes that they studied better when music is being played. The so called 'Mozart Effect', is a very famous example which was believed to improve performance level, as well as healing and developing of the brain. The term was first coined by Alfred Tomatis who used Mozart's music as the listening stimulus in his work attempting to cure a variety of disorders. The approach has been popularized, in Don Campbell's book, 'The Mozart Effect' which is based on an experiment published in 'Nature', suggesting that listening to Mozart temporarily boosted scores on one portion of the IQ test. Subsequent studies have revealed this phenomenon NOT to be the caused of Mozart or other classical composers but by an increase in arousal and mood because of listening to preferred music. The arousal and mood hypothesis, proposes that listening to a liked piece of music is just one example of a stimulus that can increase a participants arousal and mood. Thus, as long as the participants performs a task, such as listening to music that they enjoy prior to engaging in the focal task, then arousal is increased and performance improved. The interplay between reading and listening to music has been addressed in several studies and and from different angles. In many aspects, however, these studies have yield different and conflicting findings indicating that reading to music, is a very complex and difficult phenomenon to study. Recent research, however, shows that in certain situations, musical preference does NOT make a difference It has been found that whether someone likes the music or not performance is equally as poor in terms of serial recall. But, what is serial recall? A serial recall task, requires participants to recall a list of items in a specific order which is usually the order in which they were presented and is probably the most widely-used short-term memory test in neuropsychology and psychology in general. As previously stated, those students who listen to music while studying said that music helps them to study better. But, research has shown that this is not the only reason why students listen to music while studying. Students also listen to music while studying, as it helps them to block outside noise and this decreases the disturbance as well as having a sense of relaxation. But of course, not everyone agrees with this and find listening to music while studying as disturbing. So, what about you? Are you the type of person who listen to music while studying? or do you find it disturbing as well?
