What do nerves sound like?

    "For 100’s of years, scientists have been trying to figure out how exactly our nervous system relays messages. Part of the secret may lie in a sound wave! On this episode of the Big Questions podcast we are asking: What do nerves sound like?"

    Music therapy has so much potential in mitigating cultures noise disturbance/pollution. A clearly precise controlled sound (musical) can be good for our psychological health just as clear/clean air can be good for a respiratory health. Yet many live in environments with dirty/polluted air and noise.

    An advanced culture!. Are we heading there?. And if not,can music be used to mitigate the average (common) "stone age" (Evolved during the Pleistocene Epoch ) human psychology that is trending towards a dead end to no where,environmentally (unsustainable) thus culturally.

    California 7-Eleven cranks classical music to dissuade loitering

    MODESTO, Calif. (AP) — A 7-Eleven in California has found a way to keep people from panhandling and loitering outside the store: crank up classical music.

    Sukhi Sandhu, who owns the franchise in Modesto, said his customers tell him they feel safer since he started blasting symphonies and occasional operas over outdoor speakers.

    “Once the music started, the riffraff left,” said Manuel Souza, who’s homeless and jokingly referred to himself as part of the riffraff. The loud music makes it hard “to hang out and gossip and joke around” near the store, Souza told the Modesto Bee last week from under a tree down the block.

    The classical music is part of a 7-Eleven program that encourages non-confrontational methods to reduce loitering, Sandhu said. It eliminates any risks faced by clerks when asking panhandlers to leave, he said.

    Another method employed at some stores is a device that emits a high-pitched screech similar to a mosquito buzzing in your ear. Clerks turn the device on and off as needed. Classical music is more effective, Sandhu said, and he plans to introduce it at other stores he owns in central California.

    “We have received very positive feedback from our customers about the atmosphere created by the music devices piloted in several 7-Eleven stores across the US,” the convenience store chain’s corporate office said in a statement.

    The newspaper said Monday that such measures aren’t new. Convenience stores and other businesses as well as public facilities have used classical music and the mosquito device over the years to repel panhandlers, homeless people and loitering teenagers.
