    Default If you get chills while listening to music, your brain may be wired differently.

    Thought this study was pretty cool.
    I’d always assumed everyone experienced this visceral reaction to music. Can also happen while taking in art, watching a film, etc.

    When Alissa Der Sarkissian hears the song “Nude” by Radiohead, her body changes.

    “I sort of feel that my breathing is going with the song, my heart is beating slower and I’m feeling just more aware of the song — both the emotions of the song and my body’s response to it,” said Der Sarkissian, a research assistant at USC’s Brain and Creativity Institute, based at the USC Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences.

    Der Sarkissian is a friend of Matthew Sachs, a PhD student at USC who published a study last year investigating people like her, who get the chills from music.

    The study, done while he was an undergraduate at Harvard University, found that people who get the chills from music actually have structural differences in the brain. They have a higher volume of fibers that connect their auditory cortex to the areas associated with emotional processing, which means the two areas communicate better.

    “The idea being that more fibers and increased efficiency between two regions means that you have more efficient processing between them,” he said.

    I get them but only the first few times I hear a particular piece of music with the initial time being the most intense. It’s interesting news. Thanks.

    I thought it was normal for other people to experience this as well. It happens to me quite often, usually when I have the volume blasted and I hear the warmth of the instruments along with the singer's voice, or when I sing out loud along with the song. My heart starts beating fast and I get something like an endorphin rush. Sometimes I like repeating a specific section in a song that sparks the intensity just to experience it over and over again. I think this might correlate with highly sensitive people too.

    There's also something similar called Stendhal syndrome, also known as having an "art attack," but it's only when people view visual art. Some people end up fainting or even hallucinating because the sensations become too much for them.

    Agreed on that 1st article title. There are a few similarly-worded articles floating around about how your brain might be ‘special’ if you get chills from music. Crappy writers really like to dilute fascinating information by assuming we all need smoke blown up our asses before we’re actually interested.

    Yes. I’m a speshul music snowflake. That article makes me feel speshul I am a genius

    But yes, I do get the chills, goosebumps, a rush from certain pieces of music.

    Makes sense correlating it with Big 5 Openness. I've always found it hard to click with people with an indifferent relationship to music. Not because of that reason alone, but I've always found those to be quite insipid types in general. We don't mesh.

    Usually I only get chills from music if the song is

    A: Causing me to cry
    B: The song is distressing me because its screamy and it feels like someone is yelling at me.


    After all,
    How can you run from what is inside of you?
