Abstract

Numerous studies have demonstrated that mood affects emotional and cognitiveprocessing. Previous work has established that music-induced mood canmeasurably alter people's behavior in different contexts. However, the nature ofhow decision-making is affected by music in social settingshasn't been sufficiently explored. The goal of this study is to examine whichaspects of people's decision making in inter-social tasks are affected whenexposed to music. For this purpose, we devised an experiment in which peopledrove a simulated car through an intersection while listening to music. Theintersection was not empty, as another simulated vehicle, controlledautonomously, was also crossing the intersection in a different direction. Our resultsindicate that music indeed alters people's behavior with respect to this socialtask. To further understand thecorrespondence between auditory features anddecision making, we have also studied how individual aspects of music affectedresponse patterns.

Numerous studies have demonstrated that mood affects emotional and cognitive
processing. Previous work has established that music-induced mood can
measurably alter people's behavior in different contexts. However, the nature of
how decision-making is affected by music in social settings
hasn't been sufficiently explored. The goal of this study is to examine which
aspects of people's decision making in inter-social tasks are affected when
exposed to music. For this purpose, we devised an experiment in which people
drove a simulated car through an intersection while listening to music. The
intersection was not empty, as another simulated vehicle, controlled
autonomously, was also crossing the intersection in a different direction. Our results
indicate that music indeed alters people's behavior with respect to this social
task. To further understand the
correspondence between auditory features and
decision making, we have also  studied how individual aspects of music affected
response patterns.
