Doctoral thesis sintesis

The main objective of this thesis 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.
