If You Get Goosebumps While Listening To Music, It Means Your Brain is Very Special, And it Can Help If You Are Depressed

Do you ever get that awesome feeling when listening to a particular song that makes all the hairs on your back to stand on end?

I used to get that feeling when listening to Angel by the Wings by Sia, and Ed Sheeran's Happier.
Matthew Sachs a former undergraduate at Harvard, last year studied individuals who get chills from music to see how this feeling was triggered.
The research examined 20 students, 10 of which admitted to experiencing the aforementioned feelings in relation to music and 10 that didn't and took brain scans of all of them all.
He discovered that those that had managed to make the emotional and physical attachment to music actually have different brain structures than those that don't.

The research showed that they tended to have a denser volume of fibres that connect their auditory cortex and areas that process emotions, meaning the two can communicate better.
Sachs's findings have been published on Oxford Academic but he is quoted by Neuroscience as saying: 
The idea being that more fibers and increased efficiency between two regions means that you have more efficient processing between them.
This means if you do get chills from music you are more likely to have stronger and more intense emotions.
Plus these sensations can also be associated with memories linked to a certain song, which cannot be controlled in a laboratory setting.
Although the study was only small in size Sachs is currently conducting further research which will look at the brains activity when listening to songs that register certain reactions.
By doing so he hopes to learn what neurologically causes these reactions and could actually tap into treatment for psychological disorders.
Depression causes an inability to experience pleasure of everyday things. 
You could use music with a therapist to explore feelings.

    Hey! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog
    platform are you using for this site? I'm getting sick and
    tired of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers and I'm looking at
    alternatives for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

    I have been browsing online more than three hours nowadays, but I by no means discovered any interesting article like yours.
    It's beautiful value enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net
    will likely be much more helpful than ever before.

    Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the internet the
    easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely
    get annoyed while people think about worries that they just do not know about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as
    defined out the whole thing without having side effect ,
    people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get
    more. Thanks

    Hey this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs
    use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so
    I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Howdy! I understand this is sort of off-topic but I needed to ask.

    Does managing a well-established website such as yours take a large amount of work?
    I'm completely new to operating a blog but I do write in my journal daily.
    I'd like to start a blog so I can easily share my own experience and views online.
    Please let me know if you have any suggestions or
    tips for new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!
