"Canadian researcher Valorie Salimpoor, discovered that music elicits the same reaction in the brain as would the use of cocaine or the downing of a delicious meal."


"Although many people think of dopamine as a “feel-good” chemical, according to Salimpoor, it is actually not the main “feel-good” chemical in the brain. However, it does play an important role in causing addiction. Dopamine affects the brain’s motivation center, thus it is responsible for sustaining behavior.

“This is important because it is providing concrete neurochemical evidence for why we continue to listen to music,” Salimpoor said. “The reason why the dopaminergic system is relevant is because this system in the brain is actually a phylogenetically ancient system. It has evolved to reinforce highly adaptive behaviors such as eating and sex, for example, to sustain our species. So when dopamine is released, these behaviors are strongly reinforced. It’s the brain’s way of ‘stamping in’ that behavior so it is repeated.”"
