AbstractMy research focuses on the role of music in emotion induction. Emotion induction is widely used in Judgment and Decision Making tasks to determine how individuals make their decisions. Although there are several different methods of emotion induction, I chose to focus on what kind of effect music has on emotion induction. I did so by first checking whether or not the songs I picked brought about the emotion I was intending, and then by using a combined effect of music and a writing task to determine how well the simultaneous effect of both induced the emotions better. I then go on to compare gender differences in music associated arousal of emotions, and also whether or not prior musical experience has any effect of emotional arousal as well.
