Revealed: Do You Get Goosebumps While Listening To Music? It Means You Have This Type Of Brain

Chills: Do you get goosebumps from listening to music?

Have you ever got chills listening to a song? Apparently that makes you quite unusual.

You might think getting goosebumps from listening to music is a relatively normal thing – but you’d be wrong.

If you get physical goosebumps and your hair stands up on end when you are moved by a piece of music, you have a rare brain structure.

Matthew Sachs, who is a student at Harvard, decided to study people who experience this phenomenon and his findings are eye-opening.

The final year student took 10 students who said they got chills from music and 10 who didn't and compared their brain scans.

He discovered that those who have a physical reaction to music actually have a different brain structure, to those who don’t.

The group who experience “chills” had more fibres connecting their auditory cortex and areas associated with emotional processing, meaning the two areas can communicate better.

“The idea being that more fibres and increased efficiency between two regions means that you have more efficient processing between them,” Matthew told Neuroscience News.

"People who get the chills have an enhanced ability to experience intense emotions. Right now, that’s just applied to music because the study focused on the auditory cortex. But it could be studied in different ways down the line."

While Matthew’s study was small, the findings are very interesting and hopefully more research will be done in the area.

Another interesting study revealed people who like to have s*x in the early hours all have one thing in common.

S*x is good for you both mentally and physically, but doing “it” in the morning has an extra benefit we never knew about.

Apparently people who prefer getting jiggy early in the day are more intelligent.

So why wait for tonight? You’ve got the day off, you should just get straight to it to boost your brain power.

Scary News About Your Cellphone

The war rages on about the safety of cell phones.  One side argues there’s either nothing to fear, while the other warns that your phone is causes grave harm when it comes into close contact with your body. Citing the views of other experts Dr Joseph Mercola tries to show where the real truth lies.

The year 2014 marked the first time in history that there were officially more mobile devices than people in the world – approximately 7.2 billion.

Although significantly lower, the number of cell phone users is forecast to reach 4.77 billion by the year 2017.

That’s a lot of cell phones and cell phone users. But what’s even more fascinating about all these mobile devices is the behaviour that surrounds them: The average cellphone owner checks their phone 110 times a day, or about nine times each hour; and 46 percent of smartphone owners say “they couldn’t live without” their phones
