Can Sound Influence Mind and Body?

[via Mari Diary]

It is only a hypothesis, not a theory, that is based on a questionable premise about effects of baby sounds. Such a confounded case study is too biased to assess the response properly – a larger randomized study is needed, measuring many factors. Nonetheless, it is an interesting idea that warrants further research. If a clinically significant response is found, I hope this research will take more useful directions rather than breast augmentation…

  1. why is it so surprising? in england i’ve heard they use this sound to shoo children that make noise away from the entrances of shops…what a way…

    also, isn’t it quite known that dogs trainers use such subliminal sounds to train the dogs?

    • Classical conditioning certainly works, but what you might be referring to is the irritating noise that dogs can perceive well, but humans can’t.

  2. Not only the dogs’ sound. check the link I send you. It’s the ‘mosquito sound’

    • Thank you for posting the link to that video – it is quite interesting (I did check it before my first reply). I mentioned a general subliminal sound rather than a sound produced by dogs😛
