A British scientist has claimed that listening to songs by Miley Cyrus or Justin Timberlake while studying has a calming effect on the mind that aids logical thought.
Despite not being perhaps the most obvious choice of relaxing tracks, the clinical psychologist believes pop songs with 50 to 80 beats per minute allow the brain to learn and remember new facts more easily.
Dr Emma Gray, who specialises in cognitive behavioural therapy at The British CBT and Counselling Service in London, said emotive pop and rock songs including Katy Perry’s ‘Firework’ song can produce a heightened state of excitement that is likely to enhance creative performance in subjects such as English, Drama and Art.
She believes students who listen to classical music while they study, do better in maths exams, while listening to music while revising makes students smarter.
