Literature suggests that music can reduce arousal. Additionally, that reducing arousal has the potential to reduce self-injurious behaviour (SIB). The aim of this research was to determine if salivary biomarkers of arousal could mediate a relationship between music listening and SIB among boys with low functioning autism (LFA) in simulated and natural settings. Results showed that music listening reduced arousal in a simulated setting and SIB in a natural setting despite the heterogeneity of LFA.
