The Mozart effect

Dr James suggests that some cases of ‘road rage’ in motorists might be due to an overdose of pop music at the wheel (June 2001 JRSM, pp. 316-317). More likely there exist fundamental (psychological) differences between motorists listening to Mozart and motorists enjoying uncivilized music. I should not be surprised if motorists eager to mow down the odd cyclist prefer uncivilized music to Mozart.
