We were talking about FMRI, music, and the brain earlier this week and thought you might find this interesting.
#DidYouKnow that there are very few activities that utilise the whole brain and that music is one of them?
With Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (FMRI), a research team recorded a group of individuals who were listening to music.

In fact, they believe music can activate emotional, motor, and creative areas of the brain.
#DidYouKnow that those chills you feel when listening to music are caused by the brain releasing dopamine?
