Study Identifies Specific Neurons In Our Brain Light Up When We Hear Singing

Music has many promising neurological and physiological effects. It is also known that music helps in reducing anxiety and stress. Researchers from MIT have identified particular groups of neurons that appear to respond selectively to the sound of singing.

Scientists discovered that these neurons respond to singing but not to regular speech or instrumental music. This indicates that singing has a distinct neural signature in comparison to speech or instrumental music.
