      Recently published on 1st January in Cerebral Cortex, a study relates the comprehension of auditory sentences based on binaural beat. It is also exhibited to improve cognition. The EEG study on 60 participants demonstrates the use of various frequencies followed by language comprehension task. The effect of binaural beat with beta frequency was noted faster language response in comparison to control group. The function and structure of neural network supports processing of speech for comprehension. The sound waves reaching to auditory cortex through auditory nerves are differentiated based on qualities. Experiences of bilingual learning or binaural beats in early ages help to appreciate the complexities of sensory experiences as low frequency beta waves gives calming effects. The co...

It is systematically arranged rhythmic patterns of sound waves. The effects of these waves on human health are well studies by various researchers. Studies also highlight the system-wise specific effect. Biochemical and neurochemical changes are also reported with references to involvement of music. Different settings and types of music are used by therapists for desired actions in reference to cases. Effects on Different Systems: Brain is important and prime organ involving all other o...

Expression of feelings through music is not a new practice. Indians used these through various types of Raga. The types of Raga are based on collections of pitches with specific scales and modes. Each Raga has its own characteristics to evoke specific feelings among listeners. Feelings are directly attached to personality. Similar findings were observed in a study published on 29th November in PLOS ONE dealing with moral values in connection with musical choices through lyrics and audio. 1,480 participants were aligned with psychometric scores after listening music from their 5 favourite artists. The narrative, attitude, emotions and valence of each song were identified using lexicon-based approaches and BERT (bidirectional transformers for language understanding) embeddings. Moral values...

Goghrita (cow’s ghee) is an important vehicle for various formulations used in Ayurveda for brain related disorders or for formulations used as memory enhancers. Studies reveal presence of more than 50% of short chain fatty acids (SCFA) in goghrita. Among the distinguished short chain fatty acids, the butyric acid is above 1.72 %. Various parts of gastrointestinal tract take part in digestion of these fatty acids. Gastric lipase, pancreatic lipase, bile salts and others work for digestion of fatty acids. SCFA are absorbed in the colon. The absorption is concentration-gradient depending upon luminal alkalization due to bicarbonate accumulation. Thereafter, they bind to G-protein coupled receptors and participate in immune responses. So, the host lipid metabolism and absorption are studied a...
