When looking up music's influence on the brain and our lives, I found that it influences not only humans, but also plants and animals. And, depending on the style of music, it may have either a positive or negative effect. Often times it is classical and more soothing music that tends to have a more positive influence, but even that isn't always the case. The same music track can be played for two different people, and each could have a different response to it. However, one thing that is for certain is that music is a natural part of every culture.
