The human brain is a truly fascinating organ that is still full of many mysteries! It controls our entire body, sending and receiving key messages that help our bodies function normally.
There is something interesting about the brain that scientists have finally discovered: The reason some people get goosebumps when listening to music.
When you're listening to your favorite tune, do you find that the hairs on your body stand up? Or do you feel a satisfying chill? This doesn't have to happen every time you listen to a great song, but it happens often enough that you start to notice it.
Scientists call it "frisson," and it's actually not very common. Their findings say a lot about who you are as a person.
This happens to me a lot when I watch singing talent shows like American Idol or The Voice. When a new contestant comes and does a beautiful rendition of a great song, my arms start to feel tingly. It's strange because this doesn't happen to anyone else in my family.
Apparently that tingling sensation is actually telling you something about the structure of your brain. Fortunately, it's a good thing.
