I used to have Enya playing softly when putting my daughter to sleep, which has a relaxing quality to it that can spike melatonin levels, but going in the stimulation (serotonin) direction never occurred to me. Looking back to some of the music that had stimulated my thought process, I can think of only a few artists/composers. Schubert is one of my favorites for piano compositions, and then there's Segovia (or probably more accurately, Isaac Albéniz) for guitar. Then again, I'm fairly biased to guitar oriented pieces and that is a bit of a narrower spectrum. As far as my limited knowledge, there aren't many people comparable to Paganini's virtuosity, but stimulation can come from anywhere, as it's a subjective thing.
