“Blood and Zatorre (2001) reported reduced blood flow in left hippocampus during listening to self-selected music experienced as intensely pleasurable music, eliciting “chills” and other physiological responses, in comparison to control music selected by other subjects. This reduced response is thought to arise through inhibitory projections from the nucleus accumbens, part of the dopaminergic reward system in which activity increases during chills. These two regions demonstrate increased BOLD functional connectivity during music to which listeners assign increasing value – even new music with which they are not familiar (Salimpoor et al., 2013).” The hearing hippocampus, 2022 Alexander J Billig, Meher Lad, William Sedley, and Timothy D Griffiths 16.
