Significance In everyday life humans regularly seek participation in highly complex and pleasurable experiences such as music listening, singing, or playing, that do not seem to have any specific survival advantage. The question addressed here is to what extent dopaminergic transmission plays a direct role in the reward experience (both motivational and hedonic) induced by music. We report that pharmacological manipulation of dopamine modulates musical responses in both positive and negative… Expand
Musical anhedonia and rewards of music listening: current advances and a proposed model
TLDR
A neuroanatomical model of the experience of pleasure during music listening is derived that posits that hedonic responses to music are the result of connectivity between structures involved in auditory perception as a predictive process, and those involved in the brain's dopaminergic reward system. Expand
Dopaminergic signalling modulates reward-driven music memory consolidation
TLDR
This work highlights the flexibility of the human dopaminergic system, which is able to enhance memory formation not only through explicit and/or primary reinforcers but also via intrinsic, abstract, or aesthetic rewards of different natures. Expand
Musical pleasure and musical emotions
TLDR
Evidence is presented that enhancing or inhibiting dopamine signaling using levodopa or risperidone modulates the pleasure experienced while listening to music, and that NAcc activity during music listening is associated with how much money participants are subsequently willing to pay for the songs that they found pleasurable. Expand
Uncertainty and Surprise Jointly Predict Musical Pleasure and Amygdala, Hippocampus, and Auditory Cortex Activity
TLDR
It is demonstrated that pleasure varies nonlinearly as a function of the listener's uncertainty when anticipating a musical event, and the surprise it evokes when it deviates from expectations. Expand
The impact of musical pleasure and musical hedonia on verbal episodic memory
TLDR
Results revealed that participants with a high musical reward sensitivity present an increased recollection performance, especially for words encoded in a highly pleasant musical context, and suggest that musical pleasure might constitute a helpful encoding context able to drive memory improvements via reward mechanisms. Expand
Your pleasure is mine; when people share a musical emotional experience during a live music performance in a concert hall
TLDR
It is proposed that mechanisms of emotional contagion and/or emotional resonance could explain why a form of ‘emotional connecting force’ could arise between people. Expand
Common and distinct neural correlates of music and food-induced pleasure: a coordinate-based meta-analysis of neuroimaging studies
TLDR
The results of this meta-analysis support the idea that hedonic reactions rely on the engagement of a common reward network, yet through specific routes of access depending on the modality and nature of the reward. Expand
Common and distinct neural correlates of music and food-induced pleasure: A coordinate-based meta-analysis of neuroimaging studies
TLDR
The results of this meta-analysis support the idea that hedonic reactions rely on the engagement of a common reward network, yet through specific routes of access depending on the modality and nature of the reward. Expand
Links Between the Neurobiology of Oxytocin and Human Musicality
  • A. Harvey
  • Medicine
  • Frontiers in Human Neuroscience
  • 2020
TLDR
It is argued that many of these characteristics of oxytocin biology closely mirror the diverse effects that music has on human cognition and emotion, providing a link to the important role music has played throughout human evolutionary history and helping to explain why music remains a special prosocial human asset.

Using pharmacological manipulations to study the role of dopamine in human reward functioning: A review of studies in healthy adults
TLDR
Results indicated that i) DAergic drugs have different effects on different phases of reward; ii) the relationship between DA and reward functioning appears unlikely to be linear; iii) the authors' ability to detect the effects ofDAergic drugs varies depending on whether subjective, behavioral, imaging measures are used.

Neural correlates of specific musical anhedonia
TLDR
The results suggest that specific musical anhedonia may be associated with a reduction in the interplay between the auditory cortex and the subcortical reward network, indicating a pivotal role of this interaction for the enjoyment of music. Expand
From perception to pleasure: Music and its neural substrates
TLDR
It is proposed that pleasure in music arises from interactions between cortical loops that enable predictions and expectancies to emerge from sound patterns and subcortical systems responsible for reward and valuation. Expand
Modulating musical reward sensitivity up and down with transcranial magnetic stimulation
TLDR
By alternately exciting and inhibiting fronto-striatal pathways in the brain as participants listen to music, the authors are able to show causal evidence that this system mediates both affective and motivational responses to music. Expand

Music listening is highly pleasurable and important part of most people's lives. Because music has no obvious importance for survival, the ubiquity of music remains puzzling and the brain processesExpand
Anatomically distinct dopamine release during anticipation and experience of peak emotion to music
TLDR
It is found that intense pleasure in response to music can lead to dopamine release in the striatal system, and this results help to explain why music is of such high value across all human societies. Expand

Music is one of the most pleasant human experiences, even though it has no direct biological advantage. However little is known about individual differences in how people experience reward inExpand
Dissociation between Musical and Monetary Reward Responses in Specific Musical Anhedonia
TLDR
A group of healthy individuals without depression or generalized anhedonia who showed reduced behavioral pleasure ratings and no autonomic responses to pleasurable music, despite having normal musical perception capacities are identified. Expand
Investigating the dynamics of the brain response to music: A central role of the ventral striatum/nucleus accumbens
TLDR
It is suggested that the ventral striatal/nucleus accumbens response during music listening is strongest in the first seconds and then declines, which is similar to the decline of activation over time as subcortical activity. Expand
Music-related reward responses predict episodic memory performance
TLDR
Results revealed an influence of music-related reward responses on memory: excerpts rated as more rewarding were significantly better recognized and remembered and inter-individual differences in the ability to experience musical reward positively predicted memory performance. Expand
Music and Emotions in the Brain: Familiarity Matters
TLDR
Brain activation data revealed that broad emotion-related limbic and paralimbic regions as well as the reward circuitry were significantly more active for familiar relative to unfamiliar music, while smaller regions in the cingulate cortex and frontal lobe were found to be more active in response to liked music when compared to disliked one.
