Empathy and Music Process

Higher Empathy People Process Music Differently in the Brain

by Neuroscience News
Researchers report people with higher empathy process music with greater involvement in the brain's reward system and areas of the brain associated with social information processing.
The areas of the brain for reward and social awareness uniquely activate in people with higher empathy when they listen to music. The contrast that best demonstrates the key result is the bottom series of brain scan slices, where the Familiar and Unfamiliar contrast is correlated with ’empathic concern’ score. image is credited to SMU, UCLA.
