A recent BBC article left me wanting to comment but not sure whether I felt this was really news to anyone.
The article (linked here) states, “Music releases a chemical in the brain that has a key role in setting good moods, a study has suggested.
The study, reported in Nature Neuroscience, found that the chemical was released at moments of peak enjoyment.”
Of course the scientific results were new, but didnt we all know already that music is an enhancement to our moods anyway?
To me, music provides the soundtrack for our lives as we live it minute by minute with every feeling, from euphoric, happy, calm, feeling down or even devastated & depressed. It helps us express the emotion of the moment.
