Mozart and Gv?

FYI. The Cognitive Dailey blog has recently posted comments on the "Mozart effect." Below is the first paragraph. Go to this blog if you want more information.
  • How do we reconcile the variety of results that have been found with respect to the Mozart effect — the idea that the music of Mozart can lead to improved performance on spatial ability tests? With some researchers appearing to have found no effect at all, and others claiming dramatic effects, who are we to believe? In just the research we’ve reviewed here at Cognitive Daily, we’ve got Ivanov and Geake reporting a pronounced effect for both Mozart and Bach, Jackson and Tlauka arguing that there’s no Mozart effect for route learning, and McKelvie and Low declaring “final curtains for the Mozart effect.”
