Blog#2 Subliminal messaging


The impact of the Mozart effect is evident in music streaming services such as Apple Music and Spotify. These apps offer playlists for studying with Mozart’s songs and it is a common belief that classical music helps students to focus. However, as evidenced by the studies that tried to replicate the Mozart effect, the music barely have any correlation with enhanced spatial-temporal performance.  The implication of The Mozart Effect bred a whole industry similar to the boom of self-help tapes in the 1980s. Ultimately, corporations are the singular beneficiaries of such pseudoscience theories and the common man pays the price for it. A classic example of pseudoscience targeted towards the common man is drugs being marketed by pharmaceutical companies went through minimal testing for maximum profits. Companies bribe and cajole doctors to push their drugs, which ignorant patients have take unwittingly.
