Exposure to a Mozart playlist extended the lifespan of mice with epilepsy, a surprising new study found.
Leading epilepsy researcher Dr Grzegorz Bulaj, at the University of Utah Health, says the finding is 'a huge discovery.'
People - Epilepsy - Mortality - Rate - Risk
People with epilepsy have an incredibly high mortality rate, with risk of death up to three times higher due to seizures and unexplained sudden death syndrome.
But in a new study, mice who listened to music while taking their medication were less likely to suffer premature death than their epileptic peers that weren't exposed to music.
End - Study - Percent - Mice - Percent
By the end of the study, more than 80 percent of the music-exposed epileptic mice were still alive, compared to just 50 percent of the epileptic controls.
They believe it could be to do with the playlist's impacts on inflammation, which could boost cardiovascular health.
'It - Fascinating - Author - Dr - Bulaj
'It's fascinating,' lead author Dr Bulaj, who has studied epilepsy for decades, told DailyMail.com.
'That fact that such a benign intervention like exposure to music can improve mortality is very unexpected and very exciting.'
