How Does Music Affect Our Body and Brain?
Music appears to be processed in the right hemisphere of the brain. The way we experience music also affects our nervous system.
There are different neurons that respond according to what kind of music is playing. Music can effect hormones, encourage the production of cortisol, testosterone, and oxytocin. Music can even trigger a release of endorphins.
Beyond the biology and the actual responses of your body, there are definite responses of the mind as well. You're aware of how you feel when you listen to music, but how do you know that it's actually having any sort of effect on you? There is scientific evidence of the way it can affect your mind!

Interestingly enough, music even seems to have a positive effect on the memories of those who are suffering from Alzheimer's. In some cases, music can help these people remember things and events they had long forgotten. This is an amazing gift for many Alzheimer's patients!
Why Does This Work?
You might be wondering why this works the way it does. Dr. Alfred A Tomatis theorized that it's because music (specifically that of Mozart) helps to retrain the brain, in a sense. The different frequencies can help to 'exercise' the brain and provide great benefits.
