The study aimed to investigate the effect of Indian classical music on the cognitive processes, specifically spatial memory, of laboratory rats subjected to cold stress. The researchers divided the rats into six groups: control, cold stress, and cold stress with classical music intervention for both male and female rats, with three rats in each group. To assess spatial memory, the researchers used the Y-Maze behavioral paradigm. The YMaze consists of three arms shaped like the letter "Y," and each rat was given 15 minutes to explore the maze and visit each arm. The behavior of the rats was recorded using cameras, and the recordings were later examined. The results of the study indicated that the cold stress group showed impaired memory compared to the control group. Rats with impaired working memory failed to remember which arm they had just visited, resulting in reduced spontaneous alternation behavior. However, the rats subjected to cold stress with Indian classical music intervention exhibited improved spatial memory performance compared to the other groups. The researchers observed that Indian classical music had a positive influence on the impaired spatial memory of the rats. The study concludes that Indian classical music has the potential to act as a cognitive stimulator, specifically enhancing spatial memory in rats subjected to cold stress. The researchers suggest that further research is needed to understand the neurobiological mechanisms underlying these cognitive benefits and to optimize the specific elements of Indian classical music that contribute to its positive effects.
