Do The Dead Give You Chills?

Maybe your brain is different

Many of us get chills from music that moves us, whether it's our favorite Grateful Dead song, choir music or something that we connect with a special moment in our lives. It turns out that those of us who do have structural differences in our brains that include more fibers that connect audio processing with emotional processing, resulting in those feels that we get when we hear a special song. 

That's very interesting and it seems to just be something we're born with. People with these increased fibers also seem to have a higher prefrontal cortext that allows them to experience intense emotions and interpret the meaning of songs more than those with a lower prefrontal cortex.

Do you experience shivers when you hear your favorite song by the Dead or any other band?
