SUAZO GALDAMES, Iván Claudio et al. The Mozart Effect in the Practical Learning of the Gross Anatomy. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2008, vol.26, n.3, pp.713-717. ISSN 0717-9502.

The term Mozart effect begins to be used starting from the works of Rauscher et al. (1993) who observed better results in tasks that required temporo-space orientation in university students. The objective of this study is to analyze the effect that has in the practical learning of the anatomy the application of musical stimuli related with the denominated Mozart effect. This study in volved 254 participants of the careers of Dentistry, Fonoaudiology and Medical Technology. The study groups were subjected during an entire thematic Unit to auditory stimulation using the first movement of the Mozart's Sonata for Two Pianos K.448, the groups controls developed their practical activity without auditory stimulation, when concluding the unit they was carried out a practical evaluation of recognition of structures in the cadáver. The mean of the obtained results were superior in the subjected fellows to auditory stimulation, these results were statistically significant in the careers of Dentistry and Fonoaudiology, but not in Medical Technology.
