A new study finds that listening to classical music – particularly Mozart – could reduce the number of seizures someone with epilepsy has. The research from the Krembil Brain Institute at Toronto Western Hospital in Canada played two different audio clips for patients over a six-month period. And the group which heard Mozart’s Sonata for Two Pianos in D major had fewer seizures.
There are around 50-million people around the world currently living with epilepsy and 30% of epilepsy patients find that medication is a non-effective treatment for controlling seizures. But now researchers say these findings suggest that listening to Mozart daily could be considered a supplemental low-cost, non-invasive therapy to reduce seizures in people with epilepsy.
