Imagery, Music, Cognitive Style and Memory.
Stratton, Valerie N.; Zalanowski, Annette
Paired associate memory was tested with imagery and repetition instructions, with and without background music. Subjects were 64 students enrolled in an introductory psychology course. Music was found to have no effect with imagery instructions, but significantly improved performance with the repetition instructions. Music had different effects on the relationship between cognitive style and imagery in the two instruction conditions. Imagery and right hemisphere scores were negatively correlated when music was used with repetition, but positively correlated when music was used with imagery instructions. The results support Bakan's distinction between raw, right hemisphere imagery and cooked, left hemisphere imagery. (Author/RM)
