10/08/2003: "brains, music, brains, music"
I just wrote a short piece on the brain and music on proven. The neural processing of music is a really fascinating subject that I've been researching recently for a part-time gig (which ends this week, actually -- anyone else want to pay me $20 an hour to 'think about science'?)
The same wiring in our brains that responds favorably to cigarettes, sex, food, cocaine, etc is what gives us that intensely pleasurable rush when we listen to music we like. Using positron emission tomography, researchers at McGill showed that cerebral blood flow could be seen increasing and decreasing in patientsí responses to music. The regions of the brain most responsible for reward, motivation, emotion, and arousal were all activated: the amygdala, orbitofrontal cortex, ventral striatum, midbrain, and ventral medial prefrontal cortex. Our pleasure centers are quite literally activated by music we like. So when you say you're 'addicted to music' you may really mean it.
