18 posts to get to someone that actually finds the topic interesting like I did. Dayum.

I've studied the neuroendocrine system some and I find it fascinating that our thoughts and subsequent actions are sparked by the secretion of a chemical from a gland in the body somewhere.

Just look at nature for an answer. Birds singing, producing the specific frequencies and harmonics that they do, are synonymous with good weather, or just a nice day, synonymous with life of course, since lots of living birds are needed for all those pleasant whistles, etc. etc. etc. Then there's sounds that we associate with trouble. An explosion, a stampede, and so on. Listen to "Bad Horsie" by Steve Vai for a good example of music emulating a natural sound, immediately attaching a thought or emotion to it.

i think a very specific case of musically induced euphoria is when you can almost anticipate the song's melodic/harmonic/rhythmic movements before it actually gets there. and then when it kind of goes where you expect it to, but there's a twist - or it's completely new to you even though if you think about it afterward, the flow makes perfect sense. it's kind of like exploring new ground, learning of something fantastically new...in the span of seconds.

and even if you do guess right, it feels profound somehow.

"A study was conducted by researchers at McGill University in Canada. An initial 217 participants were narrowed down to 8 who consistently responded the same way when listening to music regardless of the listening environment.

For the study, the researchers used a combination of PET (positron emission tomography) and fMRI (functional magnetic resonance imagining) techniques to scan the brains of the 8 participants as they listened to music over the course of three session. In addition, the participants completed a questionnaire in which they rated how pleasurable they found the music.

This is where it gets a little more technical--the PET scan showed the researchers that dopamine was released in the striatum during peak moments of emotional arousal when listening to the music. The fMRI scan helped show a distinct difference in timing and structures involved--the caudate was active when anticipating the peak emotional arousal and the nucleus accumbens was more involved when actually experiencing the peak emotion.

In layperson's terms? When we 1) anticipate and then 2) actually experience a pleasurable response while listening to music, our brain reacts in distinct and specific ways to release the "feel good" chemical dopamine."

There was a channel 4 program on this. It was pretty interesting although I found the presenter a bit annoying.
