The effect of major or minor mode

in music on the free recall of

materials presented in a multimedia

setting was investigated.

Seventy-seven students from

Virginia Polytechnic Institute and

State University voluntarily

participated in the experiment. The

experiment consisted of three

Hypercard stacks, identical except

for the introduction where

participants heard either a major or

a minor melody line or no music.

Participants read an identical text

passage and recalled as much

information as they could about the

passage afterwards. The results

showed no significant difference

between groups.
