"The Effects Of Music In Advertising On Choice Behavior: A Classical Conditioning Approach." Journal Of Marketing 46.1 (1982): 94-101. Business Source Elite. Web. 18 Oct. 2016. Schäfer, Thomas. "The Goals And Effects Of Music Listening And Their Relationship To The Strength Of Music Preference." Plos ONE 11.3 (2016): 1-15. Academic Search Premier. Web. 18 Oct. 2016. The first article shows demonstration of experiments through a classical conditioning approach. I think this source will be helpful because of the results and their effects from advertisements on choice behavior. The second article I chose is about the goals and effects of music listening and their relationship to the strength of music preference. This article explains and shows the goals and effects of why people listen to particular music. I will use this article because it explains examples of arousal and mood regulation, social relatedness, and self-awareness through listening to music.
