According to a new study listening to Mozart daily could reduce the number of seizures a person with epilepsy experiences. 

Led by researchers at the Krembil Brain Institute at Toronto Western Hospital, the study exposed 13 participants to two different audio clips over a six-month period: some were played Mozart’s Sonata for Two Pianos in D major (for seven minutes daily, for three months), and the rest a scrambled, arrhythmic version of the same piece.

Dr Rafiee, who led the study said,”Our results showed daily listening to the first movement of Mozart K.448 was associated with reducing seizure frequency in adult individuals with epilepsy, this suggests that daily Mozart listening may be considered as a supplemental therapeutic option to reduce seizures in individuals with epilepsy.” To check out the full study click here.

The news could bring hope to the estimated 50 million people worldwide living with epilepsy.
