The Effect of Music on Memory

Today in I&S class we did an experiment to how does music effect on memory. To test this experiment we had 4 lists of 13 random words and chose 4 types of music. We had silence, the Beatles, Guns&Roses and Let it go.

Before we started this experiment I predicted that the class was going to have the highest average score in silence because we can concentrate more than with the music or noise, so worst was going be Guns&Roses.

I hypothesis was right on highest score. However, the result was different because Beatles song ended up with the lowest score. The reason is because it was the first time we played the music and tried to memorize the word, we weren’t used to it.
