Hi, I found an article related to the effects of sad music on mood which may be of use to you for your research :) it found interesting results about how listening to sad music may influence maladaptive mood regulation strategies. It is titled: Moody melodies: Do they cheer us up? A study of the effect of sad music on mood, by Garrido and Schubert (2013). Hope it helps! --SL96 (discusscontribs) 23:46, 31 August 2017 (UTC)

Hey, I came across a study that explores the effect of the emotional tone in speech and its effects. Hopefully you find it useful, you can find it at or if you just google "Covert digital manipulation of vocal emotion alter speakers’ emotional states in a congruent direction"

Hi I found this really interesting article on the effect of restaurant noises on patrons. I think it will be useful as its a real world application and also varies a bit from looking at just the influence of music. Hope you find it useful. --U3099598 (discusscontribs) 01:43, 4 October 2017 (UTC)


Hey, you've made a great start on an interesting topic! We read quite a lot about the impact of music on mood (which is fascinating!) but less about the impact of the other sounds - would be great to include these as well. Here's one study that relates to the positive impact of nature sounds on mood: Benfield, J. A., Taff, B. D., Newman, P., & Smyth, J. (2014). Natural sound facilitates mood recovery. Ecopsychology, 6, 183-188. Might be interesting to contrast human-made sounds eg traffic, construction works - are they more likely to have a negative impact and why? It might also strengthen your chapter to include some relevant theories to explain the relationships. All the best --u3122707 (discusscontribs) 06:29, 11 September 2017 (UTC)

Heading casing[edit]

Crystal Clear app ktip.svg
FYI, the convention on Wikiversity is for lower-cased headings. For example, use:

==Cats and dogs==

rather than

==Cats and Dogs==

Limitations Section[edit]

Hi! Having a section on limitations of current research, questions that still need to be answered and/or suggestions for further research may be useful!

Metal music and mood[edit]

Hey, i know metal can get a bad wrap for mood and emotion from the main steam so heres some references i found that might help you with music themes.

Theres probs heaps more i might add later but i think it would be interesting to add somewhere --Maddison Frost (discusscontribs) 04:50, 11 October 2017 (UTC)

Embedding sounds[edit]

Did you know that you can embed sounds, just like images? e.g., check out the sounds on Wikimedia Commons? commons:Category:Sound. -- Jtneill - Talk - c 07:05, 11 October 2017 (UTC)
