Ian, although I don't know too much about the "Mozart effect" specifically, I've heard from several different people that although music definitely has beneficial (and even therapeutic) effects, playing classical music for a developing baby in utero is not going to do much more than train that baby to prefer that music. The reason this study has gotten so much attention, from what I understand, is because it was among the first showing that music could be more than petty entertainment. Now a lot more is known about that kind of thing (for example, I hope to ultimately research the uses of music therapy for Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases), and while there are tons of incredibly exciting results to read about, the "Mozart effect" isn't necessarily one of them. But again, it's not my expertise, and that's just what I've read and heard from the people I've read and heard.

is anyone familiar with evolutionary psychology?

Hi Ben. Music cognition sounds interessting. Any opinions on the "Mozart effect" debate?

Hey everyone! I'm a 3rd-year cognitive neuroscience major planning on getting a Ph.D. in music cognition... not exactly psychology I know but everything about the brain/mind is fascinating!

That sounds fascinating, I dunno if I'd be able to mentally handle it though. Course, I plan on being in couples/marriage/sex counseling and sex education, so I'm sure I'll have my own headaches to look forward to lol.

Black Magick, I'm also highly fascinated by human sexuality. I'm focusing on forensics with the intention of working in prisons, but I'd love to specialize in serial rapists, especially since it frequently eventually does escalate into murder.

Psychology undergrad here, hope to go all the way to getting a doctorate, with emphasis in human sexuality.

Amy - sounds cool. I'm hoping to get into Anthropology, but also emphasizing on religion and how it affects culture (and how culture affects religion).

my dream is to get an undergraduate degree in women and gender studies, and a graduate degree in social psychology...all with the goal of studying the psychological effect of Christianity on all individuals, especially women and children within the dynamics of the Christian family. i was deeply entrenched in bible-believing Christian culture during my 23 yr marriage, to the great detriment of myself and my kids (divorced 5 years ago). sometimes i get discouraged b/c of my age, and have to keep reminding myself that my experience is valuable, and chronological age is irrelevant.

@Jerica - Oh good. I'll take the first appointment.
