Transcranial stimulation of the brain. The truth behind the joy of listening to music.

#1
Love for the music is not what it seems. Are you sure that you favorite melodies could help you in difficult moments of your life? Your brain got a surprise for you! The newest researches of Montreal Neurological University and the hospital of McGill University Hospital have shown that it’s easy to raise or reduce the joy of listening to music.The new #tDCS (#Transcranial or Transcranial stimulation of the brain) technology can change the tastes of music lovers, rockers, rappers on rhythms, grooves, rhymes and punches with the proper stimulation of the brain.

“Transcranial brain stimulation (TBS) which affects aesthetic perception is not only an important demonstration that the patterns underlying these complex reactions are becoming more understandable, but also shows that these patterns have possible clinical applications,” says Robert Zator, a professor of neurology and neurosurgery, as well as the author of the study. “Many #psychic #disorders, including chemical addiction, #obesity and #depression are closely related to the insufficient regulation of the reward and pleasure systems of the brain.The ability to control this mechanism practically opens the door for effective #nonchemicaltherapy and socio-psychological #noninvasiverehabilitationmethod. “ Currently, the authors of the #tDCS use a combination of TBS and Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (#FMRI) to determine specific areas of the brain and the mechanisms responsible for the changes found in the research. Researchers used TBS of the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex to stimulate or inhibit this region of the brain. The visualization of the brain showed that stimulation modulates the functioning of the #frontterrestrial bonds, which leads to the isolation of #dopamine, the key #neurotransmitter, which is an important part of the “reward system”, as it causes a sense of satisfaction. The researchers found that #thepleasure of music and the amount of positive emotions were significantly enhanced after stimulation, which TBS activates, while inhibiting TBS led to opposite results.
