Why EDM Lovers Crave Music

Posted at July 19th, 2016 | by Singh Shivani | in Dance Music, Entertainment

To all those EDM fans out there who have experienced an extreme craving for ‘the drop’ and haven’t yet figured out the reason behind it, wonder no more. Kiralee Musgrove, a neuroscientist and a fellow researcher at the Melbourne University in Australia is here to resolve your queries. She has been carrying out a study to map the brains of volunteers (mainly EDM fans) to come up with a possible inference on acute levels of distress and craving disorders.

 

 

According to her, pleasure responses to music were generated by the same primitive part of the brain — the nucleus accumbens — associated with highs from sex, drugs or even chocolate. “In evolutionary terms, it makes sense that we would have a profound pleasure response to sex or food, but it’s not so obvious why music also makes our spine tingle or our heart race. Science doesn’t really understand how the brain makes that leap from hearing to feeling”, said Musgrove.

 

 

“I am interested in music, brains, and music in brains.” She believes that this could be a major breakthrough in the field of music research which for long has been overlooked. The researcher has a blog as well as a website devoted to this cause – www.kiraleemusgrove.com.
