Many people can agree that music is the universal language.
It is the central connection we have with one another, which is celebrated in
various ways throughout the world. Music has become such an important part of
our lives that it has become almost impossible to live without. It is a
lifestyle, a culture that is deeply acknowledged.
A study was carried out in 2001 by PNAS (Proceedings of the
National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America) where they used PET
to measure regional cerebral blood flow changes while subjects listened to
music that they chose to predictably stimulate the blissful experience of
chills. The results showcased that subjects reported experiencing chills during
77% of scans when they played their own chosen music.
