The present thesis aimed to determine the psychobiological mechanisms of the purported
beneficial effectiveness of music interventions. For this purpose, two studies were
conducted. In a first study, the associations between music listening and health were
investigated under consideration of predicted mediating mechanisms. In a second study, we
set out to examine the assumed stress-reducing effect of listening to relaxing music in a
rigorously controlled experiment in a laboratory setting across neuroendocrine, autonomic,
cognitive, and emotional domains of the acute stress experience in healthy participants.
