Furthermore, there is a significantnumber of other aspects of behavioral and metabolic response to meditation rangingfrom an improved reaction to casual but stressful stimuli to significant behavioralresponse change such as lack of negative or uncontrolled emotional response, a muchimproved ability to cope and manage under-pressure situations as well as feelings oflasting happiness which modulate the perception of overall experience. This papersurveys the research literature studying the phenomenon of meditation from anemotional well-being, behavior management and brain activity standpoint with thepurpose of making connections with possible research in the field of music cognition andalso for stimulating the contributions to such research from the community of musicprofessionals.
