Blog Post #3: The "Mozart Effect"

 I had no idea what this was until I read about it in class and did more research. This effect says that "listening to Mozart's compositions (and other classical music) will increase spatial intelligence." When I was younger and heard people listening to classical music I thought they were super smart people because that type of music is stereotyped with having a high IQ. Now I know that is not accurate. The lecture said the results were small, equivalent to 8-9 IQ points. Learning about this was something that I was intrigued in. Lecture 5 was definitely in my top 3 favorite lectures for the class.
