The Mozart Effect: Has Mozart become blurred….

Dyslexia -learning through musicThe Mozart effect is well known as a potential study enhancing programme suggesting that  the beat of a Mozart piece is linked to the brain state known as relaxed alertness which is the best state for learning to take place in the classroom.However a recent study found that children responded better and retained more information given whilst listening to Blur rather than Mozart.Does this mean that brain states change when listening to music you like-it would seem so  or  does it suggest that an emotional response to a musical stimuli is an factor in changing a brain state?  More trials of this type may help us to undertand the complexity of the music brain.
