I need support with this Writing question so I can learn better.Report (90 marks)You will conduct a research study investigating the impact of soothing music on physiological responses, based on Upadhayay (2016). The paper can be found here: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/309208822…The dependent variable must be one of the following: (i) heart rate, (ii) respiratory rate, (iii) body temperature.The assignment can be fully answered using one dependent variable, but you can include a maximum of two dependent variables if this is necessary to the design of your experiment. In this case, your answer should demonstrate how these two measures are necessary and complementary.Preparation for Lab SessionWith your GBA groupDecide as a group on 4 pieces of instrumental music that everyone agrees is “soothing” to them. Each of these pieces should be about 4 minutes in duration. Save these 4 audio clips as your group’s soothing instrumental music.In addition, prepare a set of excerpts for each of these four pieces. Each excerpt should be 1 minute in length and should be representative of the full music piece in how soothing it is (see details below in sequence of events).IndividuallySupporting your answer with empirical evidence, justify the group’s choice of pieces and identify the characteristics in these pieces that make them soothing.Find one person to conduct the experiment on.Materials/Equipment for measuring:Heart rate (HR): Heart rate monitoring device. Please state clearly the device that was used. If your participant does not have a heart rate monitoring device, he/she can calculate this manually by counting the number of heart beats over 15 seconds and multiplying this number by 4.More instructions on how to count your heart rate manually can be found on this website (https://www.health.harvard.edu/heart-health/want-to-check-your-heart-rate-heres-how#:~:text=At%20the%20wrist%2C%20lightly%20press,That’s%20your%20heart%20rate.)Body temperature (BT): body thermometerRespiratory rate (RR): Digital device that monitors respiratory rate. Please state the device that was used. The respiratory rate can also be calculated manually by counting the number of breaths taken in 15 seconds (number of times the chest rises). Multiply this number by 4 to get the RR per minute.
