Young drivers find music is a must as more stimulus helps their driving ability

Tuesday, 23 February 2021

Driving is "absolutely impossible" without music, suggested the findings of a new study led by Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) researchers.

The novel study was published in the journal Psychomusicology: Music, Mind, and Brain.

"To young drivers 18-29, music in the car isn't just entertainment, it's part of their autosphere whether they're alone or not," said Prof. Warren Brodsky, director of the BGU Music Science Lab in the Department of the Arts.






"They are so used to constant stimulation and absorbing great amounts of information throughout the day, that they don't question how the type of tunes they play might affect concentration, induce aggressive behaviour, or cause them to miscalculate risky situations," added Brodsky.

"As the fastest growing research university in Israel, BGU provides studies that give us great insight into the causes and effects of human behavior," said Doug Seserman, chief executive officer, American Associates, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev.
