If you get goosebumps when listening to music you need to read this

If you get goosebumps when listening to music you need to read this
When you play a song you love, do you get goosebumps? Then you might be interested in an academic study called ‘Brain connectivity reflects human aesthetic responses to music.’ 
 
So what does that mean? PhD student Matthew Sachs examined twenty people, split between those who get the bumps when listening to music they love and those who don’t and concluded that the former have “a higher volume of fibers that connects their auditory cortex to the areas associated with emotional processing, which means the two areas communicate better.”
 
Or in short, if you get musical goosebumps you are more ‘in touch with your emotions’. In practical terms, this might lead to new treatments for depression and other issues. It also allows a lot of people to feel better about themselves. Quartz have an interview and more depth.
