<strong>Doctoral</strong> <strong>thesis</strong> <strong>sintesis</strong> The main objective of this <strong>thesis</strong> was the investigation of music-induced emotions, especially operatic music. Our studies showed that music induces specific emotions which corelated with coresponding physiological responses, emphasizing some of the important mechanisms underlying musical emotions. Moreover, we extended previous observations concerning musicians and non-musicians differences, mapping for the first time the affective space of an entire musical composition. The results suggest important implications for future research on musical-induced emotions in general, operatic music in particular. Our research revealed that music is a complex stimuli, which allows the experience of multiple and various emotions that emerge and develop in a relatively short period of time. No other known stimuli, word or image, has such an important effect.
