Music and the Brain

Here's a link to a long newspaper story about one of the main brain scientists looking at music and the brain, a man by the name of Petr Janata.

Here's one quote - "Research reveals that when people perform music together or listen to it, their bodies release oxytocin—a trust or bonding hormone".

And another -  “The more we like music, the more we move to it, and the more we move to it, the more pleasure we feel. Music stimulates the release of dopamine—the so-called feel-good hormone.”
