THE MOZART EFFECT2Music and Spatial Task PerformanceState the research hypothesis in your own words.The research hypothesis this study is the music which has no sophistication as well as music which is repetitious and therefore can intervene with instead of improving the thinking in the abstract. In addition, the musicians can interpret the music by use of different version from that of non-musicians. This would be captivating and will be in contrast with the two (Rauscher, Shaw, & Ky, 1993).Identify the independent and dependent variables.The dependent variables in this study are the abstract thinking together with the spatial task performance. This is due to the fact that these factors rely mainly on the effect the music has on them so as to function in a particular way. For instance, in the spatial task performance study, it can be noted that the performance is dependent on the Mozart effect. The ones which are exposed to the Mozart music have been found to be functioning in better regards to the spatial task performance together with the abstract thinking when compared to the ones which are not (Verschuren, Doorewaard, & Mellion, 2010).Consequently, the independent variables in this study are the music especially the sonata for the Mozart for the two pianos in the D major k488. This is due to the fact that the music is notaffected in any way irrespective of whether some individuals are examined in the function which is better or not (Rauscher, Shaw, & Ky, 1993). Thus, music can be denoted as just music since nothing can influence its effect on the audience and participants of the experiment which is beneficial.
