Two groups of rats were raised separately, each with one of the following two kinds of music:
(1) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AWggPLXeOkU&ob=av3e
(2) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ipzR9bhei_o
The rats who were exposed to music like (2) performed better in maze tests.
Is it true, then, that the stereotypical mathematician listens to classical music for this very reason?
Sources: I forgot where I first read about this.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I'd rather listen to that than to what I posted above while working, satellite. :P Although I do mostly listen to music like (1), but less heavy. Like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ypCdGNe3Bvs It's like a shot of adrenaline!
