Can the Lincoln MKX's new sound system influence your brain?

The answer, simply, is yes.

We like to boast about the immersive sound quality and listening modes of the Revel sound system available in the new Lincoln MKX. However, the effect of music on the brain is well-documented, regardless of the delivery mechanism.

Studies have shown that listening to pleasant music can improve mood, causing serotonin to be released in the brain. Feeling down? Try some upbeat tunes.

Your brainwaves want to resonate with the rhythm of music, if it has a strong enough beat. High-tempo tunes can make you feel alert or excited, and slow songs are nice to relax to.

Music also engages the hippocampus, the part of the brain responsible for emotion and memory. Ever hear a song you haven't heard since you were a kid, and suddenly these memories start flooding back to you?

Now, our question is: if music is so important to the way our brains work, wouldn't you want your sound quality to be the best?

When you come in to James Hodge Ford Lincoln Inc. to test drive a new Lincoln vehicle, be sure to give it a test-listen, too.
