The aesthetic experiences of Quranic recitation are receiving attention from scientific community. While the contribution of quantitative electroencephalography (qEEG) towards investigation of cognition especially language processing as well as psychoacoustical effects are abundant. Yet knowledge about the integration for these two domains are scarce, hence this powerful tool rarely applied in measuring the effects of its acoustic stimulation to listeners’ brain physiology and psychology. This study aimed to review the potential of qEEG in assessing cognitive and psychoacoustical effects of acoustic stimulation from Fatihah Chapter recitation - the first chapter of The Holy Quran, the Muslims book of guide. This review article found that qEEG serves highly potential neuroimaging information those might improve the interpretation of the Fatihah Chapter and even Quranic acoustic stimulation effects.
