Why Do We Love Music?

There are many theories about why humans love music. Many studies have been done, with the results being that although people love music and there are a number of features of music that make people feel good, it is not the cause of why humans enjoy it so much. Theories suggest that music has a neurological effect on the brain, but that it is not the only neurological effect that occurs. Another theory about why people love music is that it causes you to feel a certain way, and this theory also points to the ability of music to make us feel a certain way. There are many theories out there, but until someone comes up with a scientific theory about why humans love music, we can at least rely on common sense to tell us that it does indeed influence our moods.

Why Humans Love Music

One theory as to why humans love music is because it causes the brain to release dopamine, a chemical that is present in the brain. Dopamine is said to be the pleasure chemicals that make us feel good. When we are happy, we use music to feel happy, and when we are sad, we use music to feel sad. Music is also known to be able to trigger the part of the brain that triggers memory. This is why it is so important to remember things.

Without music, we would not be able to remember our childhood, or our favorite childhood songs. The reason that dopamine is released during times of happiness and sadness is because the hypothalamus releases a hormone called norepinephrine, which causes the release of dopamine. Music is one of the best things that we can put in our brains, because it makes us feel good. And one of the reasons that we feel good is because of the effects that music has on the brain.
