  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to determine whether engaging in music listening tasks can reduce the perception of pain and provide nondrug pain relief.

Study hypotheses: 1) Performing a highly engaging listening task reduces psychophysiological arousal to painful stimuli. 2) Psychophysiological arousal to painful stimuli is a function of the complexity of the auditory signal. 3) Signal complexity and task difficulty interact to produce the greatest engagement and maximum reduction in psychophysiological arousal to painful stimuli.
