Listening to Mozart makes you smarter

Listening to Mozart makes students smarter--but only for 10 to 15 minutes. So argues a team of psychologists from the University of California at Irvine, who published their preliminary findings in the British scientific journal ョMDITッNatureョMDNMッ. Listening to relaxation tapes or sitting in silence had no effect, but the college students scored between 8 and 9 points higher on an IQ test after hearing a Mozart sonata.
