Video: The Science Behind Why Music Is A Drug

You know how really good music can be so good that you become addicted to it and feel like a junkie? Well, there’s a good reason for that. As the video below explains, truly superb music releases dopamine just like a delicious meal or, perhaps, winning the lottery. Or, you know, doing some drugs like cocaine or various pills, which manipulate the creation/absorption of dopamine. Some of you probably already knew about all this, but the video does a damn-good job of explaining why we react the way we do to music and, in some cases, become addicted. [via]
