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.

Marriage: A school of learning, discovery

By Pastor Okokon Ating I have been enlightened that marriage is an insti-tution established by God which no student has gra-duated from. Once an in-dividual is able to obtain admission into this sch-ool, one keeps on learning till death. In the school of marriage every student is a novice. No matter how highly educated one is, he/she has a blank knowledge compared with the normal academic attainment.                                                   wedding ring
There are many mysteries embedded in marriage unknown to the unlearned heart. Couples do not know marriage but learn and study it. That is, cou-ples learn and study it when they come into the practical aspect of it. I came in contact with a young lady who was busy attending marriage semin-ars and reading several books on marriage. Atten-ding seminars and reading books on marriage are good, I told her; but where you can know and be pr-oud of living confidently in marriage is when you enter into the reality of marriage. This is w…
