Using Music as a Background for Reading: An Exploratory Study.
Mulliken, Colleen N.; Henk, William A.
Journal of Reading, v28 n4 p353-58 Jan 1985
Reports on a study during which intermediate level students were exposed to three auditory backgrounds while reading (no music, classical music, and rock music), and their subsequent comprehension performance was measured. Concludes that the auditory background during reading may affect comprehension and that, for most students, rock music should not be played. (HOD)
