Health Tip: Rock Till You Drop

(HealthDayNews) -- Russian researchers have come up with a neat way to spur productivity among those whose job involves reading numbers and punching them into a computer.

Play rock music in the work area.

According to a report in the journal Neuroscience of Behavior and Physiology, the Russian Academy of Sciences found a person's ability to recognize visual images, including letters and numbers, is faster when either rock or classical music is playing in the background.

They are doing some fascinating research in the field of music. There is even lots of controversy around new discoveries in certain pitches that we dont even hear being able to stimulate certain emotions to the extent that these could actually be potential weapons, psych warfare etc..this amazes me.
