The impact of sound on brain, body and emotionsestors

Pursuit of science

Science has taken over the world in new era and how it has transformed our worldview in short space of time is miraculous. Fundamental discoveries in science has given us the ability to find the answers and solve the mysteries.

Science is the pursuit of knowledge about ourselves and the world around us. That pursuit of knowledge has also shaped the way we view the world, as has the application of the knowledge. It has transformed our lives, generally for the better.

Science is a triumph of human knowledge and we can all share in its excitement. At the same time, understanding its many uses can help us be engaged in decisions that affect us all in better living and understanding this space.

Evolution of human through sound

The evolution process of man came from the beginning of this space. Homo sapiens, from our closest living cousins. Ascribed activities, from tool-making to having a theory of mind and empathy.
Our earlier evolutionary development ability to create and respond to music, and to dance to the beat of time was already inherited by our ancestors.

The first musical instrument used by our ancestors was the voice. The ear is always open and, unlike vision and the eyes or the gaze, sound cannot readily be averted. From the rhythmic beating within and with the mother’s body for the fetus and young infant, to the primitive drum-like beating of sticks on wood and hand clapping of our adolescent and adult proto-speaking ancestors, the growing infant is surrounded by and responds to rhythm.
Somewhere along the evolutionary way, our ancestors, with very limited language but with considerable emotional expression, began to articulate and gesticulate feelings: denotation before connotation in other words, meaning in music came to us before meaning given by words.

The greatest different between the homo sapiens and the apes is the increase in the area allocating to process the auditory information The expansion of primary and association auditory cortices and their connections, associated with the increased size of the cerebellum and areas of prefrontal and premotor cortex linked through basal ganglia structures, heralded a shift to an aesthetics based on sound, and to abilities to entrain to external rhythmic inputs.
Well through this study generated by various researches presents out the music and sound not only gave meaning to words but the proto language of gestures and movements and the thinking ability has been emerged through the help of sounds.
Tthrough facts and figures and creating hypothesis the medium his developed to connect with truth. To find the answers of the unknown scientific studies have been generated to reveal the answers.

Influence of sound on neuroscience (brain)

The greatest development cognitive attributes, linked closely with the evolutionary developments of our brain, in terms of both size and structure. the development of effective working memory and our vocal language efficient communication have all emerged from these genetic–environmental adaptations over several million years.

Brain-wave entrainment is an effective tool to use on cognitive functioning deficits, stress, pain, headaches, and premenstrual syndrome.

Cognitive neuroscience explores how the neural circuits of the brain produce cognitive and psychological functions, giving us insight into the different workings of left and right brains. The left brain houses the ego center and all the accompanying information about ourselves and our lives: name, birth date, address, preferences and peeves, language, career and other markers of identity.
The left brain excels at processing patterns and makes relatively automatic, often subconscious predictions about our responses to stimuli based on pattern recognition, responses like how we will think, feel or act in the future based on past experience. The left brain utilizes critical thinking, judgement and analysis to inform us of the world around us and our own unique.

Place in it the right brain looks at the big picture and imagines in abstracts, evaluating subtle communication cues like body language, tone of voice and facial expression in order to determine the level of trust we should place in the safety of our current situation or if there looms the presence of dishonesty and danger. The right brain puts communication in a proper context by softening the very literal interpretations given by the left brain.


It has long been known that the brain generates electromagnetic signals, which can be detected with EEG (Electro-encephalogram) equipment and that different frequencies are produced depending on neural activity. Neuro-acoustics is the feeding back of these frequencies to the brain through the use of sound waves. Binaural beats are often used as a means of transferring this information in a spatial format to the body-mind

The relation of humans with sound and ancient history has given rise to study known as neuroacoustics. The scientific study of perception of sound and it has fuelled researchers’ paths to better understand how it can be used as medicine.
To understand the fundamentals of sound in healing, we must first understand our brain waves.
The nucleus of our thoughts, emotions, and behaviours, is the communication between neurons. Brain waves are generated by way of electrical pulses working in unison from masses of neurons interacting with one another.

Essentially brain waves are created by the electrical signals working together in neurons. These are divided into five bandwidths that are theorized to form consciousness:
· Delta waves (.5 to 3 Hz) the slowest brain waves that occur primarily during dreamless sleep (REM).

· Theta waves (3 to 8 Hz) also occurs during sleep but has also been in deep meditation.

· Alpha waves (8 to 12 Hz) are present when your brain is in an idling default-state typically created when you’re daydreaming or consciously practicing mindfulness or meditation.

· Beta waves (12-30 Hz) the typical waking state of consciousness and when the attention is focused on brain-centric tasks. This is a fast brain wave that’s associated with concentrated attention, such as in decision making.

· Gamma waves (25 to 100 Hz) the fastest waves, gamma waves are often related to processing a high volume of information. Strongly correlated to higher states of consciousness.

Sound effects all areas in the brain and absorbs information and changes the certain areas of the brain accordingly through releasing serotonin.
Our various states of conscious are constantly getting effected through the relation of sound in our life. Architectural and the behavioral changes of the brain and body are constantly in change through the sound as well the neurochemical and electric neural oscillations of brain.

Influence of sound on affective science (emotions)

The word emotion comes from “motion” movement. All emotions are energy. Energy moves, energy has a vibrational frequency, and energy forms and transforms. Emotions move, have a vibrational frequency, take form, are changing, and impermanent.

Emotions are states (i.e. temporary forms) comprised of energy and that are in constant flux. Energy takes form and Emotions are forms. Anything that takes form by its very nature will transform and dissolve.

The link between music and emotion seems to have been accepted for all time. Plato considered that music played in different modes would arouse different emotions, and as a generality most of us would agree on the emotional significance of any particular piece of music, whether it be happy or sad; for example, major chords are perceived to be cheerful, minor ones sad.
The tempo or movement in time is another component of this, slower music seeming less joyful than faster rhythms. This reminds us that even the word motion is a significant part of emotion, and that in the dance we are moving – as we are moved emotionally by music

If it is a language, music is a language of feeling. Musical rhythms are life rhythms. Every chemical release in the body can be directly influenced by the music.

Affective acoustics

Most of the lower emotions are associated with sounds that are really irritating, such as: pessimism, frustration, irritation, impatience, disappointment, doubt, worry, blame, discouragement, anger, revenge, hatred, rage, jealousy, insecurity, guilt, unworthiness, fear, grief, depression, despair, and powerlessness. These are distorted or inconsistent sounds, and they break down your physical body.

On the other hand, the sounds associated with higher emotions support your health, such as: contentment, hopefulness, optimism, positive expectation, belief, enthusiasm, eagerness, happiness, passion, joy, appreciation, empowered, freedom, and love. They actually nurture the beating of your heart and your nervous system. The sounds associated with these emotions are consistent and quite pure tones. Vowel sounds resonate these types of energies the best. Vowels create consistent and pure tones.
The trick is to simply be present enough to notice when you are resonating with the irritating sound and music of lower emotions, and is simply changing the station to the consistent and beautiful sounds and music by resonating higher emotions.
Everything is energy. Your thoughts begin it. Your emotions amplify it, and your action increases its momentum. Investigate for yourself. Be the observer of your thought stream. Be the watcher watching your mind. When you learn to transition from thinking into awareness, suddenly you realize your thinking is causing you certain emotions, like Anger, Depression, Anxiety: The Big Three, but Not the Big Easy.

The truth is that mind is the conspiracy behind emotions which makes us feel in different every time and gets stored in the body and responds through actions so your behaviours originates from how you are perceiving things by your mind becomes the cause of you at present.

Influence of sound on physiology (body)

Every part of the body emits typical frequencies that can each be accurately measured and analysed to determine whether they are normal or abnormal. If an organ is failing to perform in a normal manner, it can easily be corrected and normalized by using sound waves to alter its frequency. In fact, every illness has its own specific frequency characteristics. By measuring these frequencies and applying the right sound wave measurement to re-balance these broken frequencies, they can be returned to normal and health is restored.

One of the most beneficial researchers, Bruce Tainio of Tainio Technology, built another frequency monitor in 1992 and discovered that the average frequency of the human body during daytime is 62 to 68 Hz.
According to Tainio, the body resonates frequency between 62 to 72 Hz when healthy. As the frequency drops due to environmental and physiological factors, our immune system is compromised and disease is more apt to develop.

The application of using frequencies to heal the body had already been suggested by the American inventor Nikola Tesla (1856 – 1943) who pioneered electrical technology. He said, “If you could eliminate certain outside frequencies that interfered with our bodies, we would have greater resistance toward disease.”


Music is sound, and sound is rooted in vibration. Led by Lee Bartel, PhD, a music professor at the University of Toronto, several researchers are exploring whether sound vibrations absorbed through the body can help ease the symptoms of Parkinson's disease, fibromyalgia, cancer, pain, viruses, inflation, respiratory, cardio, reproductive, skeleton, muscular. Known as vibroacoustic therapy.

Using low frequency sound similar to a low rumble to produce vibrations that are applied directly to the body. During vibroacoustic therapy, the patient lies on a mat or bed or sits in a chair embedded with speakers that transmit vibrations at specific computer-generated frequencies that can be heard and felt.
Lower frequency brain waves can also stimulate the release of nitric oxide, which signals smooth muscles to relax, so our blood vessels dilate and increase blood flow.
Release of nitric oxide positively affects pain transmission and control, which some scientists believe helps to modify our relationship to pain.

Mona Lisa Chanda, PhD, found that music improves the body's immune system function and reduces stress. Listening to music was also found to be more effective than prescription drugs in reducing anxiety before surgery.

The researchers found that listening to and playing music increase the body's production of the antibody immunoglobulin A and natural killer cells — the cells that attack invading viruses and boost the immune system's effectiveness. Music also reduces levels of the stress hormone cortisol.

Everything vibrates, and sound passes through and around us all the time. Sound is a critical signifier to understand every motion and energy around us and inside us. Ability to learn and understand the role of sound in cosmos will help to create a better living and well being for all the areas of human and other species and also to understand and relate better with environmental matter around us.
Let us all sink and experience the effects of sound present around us using it consciously and preparing the self to be aware of the sound present around us in conscious.
