- Our experience of the music we love stimulates the pleasure chemical dopamine in our brain.
- Just the anticipation our favorite passage stimulates the production of dopamine.
- The chills moment can be used to objectively index pleasure.
- Each chill-susceptible music lovers were provided ten pieces of instrumental music that set them off in some way. The genres included tango, techno, punk, rock, electronica, jazz, folk.
- Hemodynamic activity in the regions showing dopamine release was not constant throughout the [musical] excerpt, but was restricted to moments before and during chills.
- 鳥肌感を感じている際に 線条体でのドーパミン分泌 が確認された。- 鳥肌感 (例えばサビ) を期待する時には尾状核が、実際に感じている時は側坐核が活動しており、期待フェーズと体験フェーズに異なる神経メカニズムが存在する。
