Using Music As An Emotional Tool

Music is an art form whose purpose is to communicate an emotional response. This is something that many people have noticed, since certain songs can make one feel happy, and others might make one feel sad.

Scientists have found that the pleasurable experience of listening to music releases dopamine, a neurotransmitter in the brain associated with more tangible pleasures (or rewards) such as food, drugs and sex.
