Why does music feel so good and who does it have the power to change a person’s moods? That is what neuroscientist Valorie Salimpoor and colleagues are trying to find out. Study reveals that by listening to classical music, certain areas of the brain show patterns of synchronized activity. Certain neural connections in the brain can predict how much a person likes a certain type of music, and how musical preferences are based on what they have listened to in the past.
