Effects of LSD on music-evoked brain activity
TLDR
Results showed pronounced cortical and subcortical changes in music-evoked brain activity under LSD, and most notable changes in brain activity and connectivity were associated with the component timbral complexity, representing the complexity of the music’s spectral distribution.
Thalamocortical Mechanisms for Nostalgia-Induced Analgesia
As a predominately positive emotion, nostalgia serves various adaptive functions, including a recently revealed analgesic effect. The current fMRI study aimed to explore the neural mechanisms
What makes music memorable? Relationships between acoustic musical features and music-evoked emotions and memories in older adults
TLDR
The results suggest that music-evoked emotions are strongly related to music- Evoked memories in healthy older adults and that both music-Evoked emotions and memories are predicted by the same core musical features.
When tension is exciting: an EEG exploration of excitement in music
TLDR
Expectation is important to the induction of musical emotions, in agreement with the ITPRA theory, and activity in the IFG and MFG showed a strong correlation with subjective excitement ratings during Drop apprehension.
Serotonin 2A Receptor Signaling Underlies LSD-induced Alteration of the Neural Response to Dynamic Changes in Music
TLDR
Tonality-tracking analysis of BOLD data revealed that 5HT2A receptor signaling alters the neural response to music in brain regions supporting basic and higher-level musical and auditory processing, and areas involved in memory, emotion, and self-referential processing.
Qualitative and Quantitative Features of Music Reported to Support Peak Mystical Experiences during Psychedelic Therapy Sessions
TLDR
An anonymous survey of individuals with extensive experience administering psilocybin or p silocybin-containing mushrooms is conducted in order to identify the features of commonly used musical selections that have been found by therapists and research staff to be supportive of mystical experiences within a pSilocybin session.
Reconstructed Nostalgia
In chillwave, synthwave, vaporwave, and their respective subgenres, a common element is the thread of nostalgia, constant in each. This is the case for both the cover art used for these releases, as
Beauty and the brain: Investigating the neural and musical attributes of beauty during a naturalistic music listening experience
TLDR
A neural mechanism for inter-subjective beauty judgments of music in the supratemporal-orbitofrontal circuit is identified, irrespectively of individual taste and listening biography, and some invariance in objective musical attributes of beautiful and ugly passages was evidenced.
Music Reveals Medial Prefrontal Cortex Sensitive Period in Childhood
TLDR
It is found that childhood is a sensitive period for mPFC encoding of regulatory stimuli, and the timing of this putative sensitive period could be moved by early-life stress.

Music-evoked nostalgia: affect, memory, and personality.
TLDR
Nostalgia was stronger to the extent that a song was autobiographically salient, arousing, familiar, and elicited a greater number of positive, negative, and mixed emotions.
Mapping Aesthetic Musical Emotions in the Brain
TLDR
Functional neuroimaging with parametric analyses based on the intensity of felt emotions reveal a differentiated recruitment across emotions of networks involved in reward, memory, self-reflective, and sensorimotor processes, which may account for the unique richness of musical emotions.
The Neural Architecture of Music-Evoked Autobiographical Memories
  • P. Janata
  • Psychology, Biology
    Cerebral cortex
  • 2009
TLDR
It is shown that the dorsal MPFC associates music and memories when the authors experience emotionally salient episodic memories that are triggered by familiar songs from their personal past, and spontaneous activation of an autobiographical memory network in a naturalistic task with low retrieval demands.
Characterisation of music-evoked autobiographical memories
TLDR
It is shown that excerpts of popular music serve as potent stimuli for studying the structure of autobiographical memories, and several social and situational contexts for memory formation were common across many memories.
Brain correlates of music-evoked emotions
  • S. Koelsch
  • Psychology, Biology
    Nature Reviews Neuroscience
  • 2014
TLDR
Functional neuroimaging studies on music and emotion show that music can modulate activity in brain structures that are known to be crucially involved in emotion, such as the amygdala, nucleus accumbens, hypothalamus, hippocampus, insula, cingulate cortex and orbitofrontal cortex.
From Vivaldi to Beatles and back: Predicting lateralized brain responses to music
Neural systems subserving valence and arousal during the experience of induced emotions.
TLDR
These findings suggest the existence of distinct networks subserving the valence and arousal dimensions of emotions, with midline and medial temporal lobe structures mediating arousal and dorsal cortical areas and mesolimbic pathways mediating valence.
Emotions evoked by the sound of music: characterization, classification, and measurement.
TLDR
The authors addressed this question by progressively characterizing music-induced emotions in 4 interrelated studies by introducing a domain-specific device to measure musically induced emotions--the Geneva Emotional Music Scale.
Brain Networks That Track Musical Structure
  • P. Janata
  • Psychology, Biology
    Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences
  • 2005
TLDR
Very early evidence is emerging from the literature for the hypothesis that the rostral medial prefrontal cortex is a node that is important for binding music with memories within a broader music‐responsive network.
