A study by the University of Vienna has concluded that there is no evidence for the so-called ‘Mozart Effect’, by which listening to the composer’s music is thought to enhance the cognitive development of infants.

I really did think this had already made the news. But here it is for sure.


I love the end of the short article:

Jakob Pietschnig, one of the authors of the report commented: “I recommend everyone to listen to Mozart’s music, but it will not meet your expectation of raising cognitive performance.”
