I've recently listened to a podcast, "The music in your brain", in which Dr. Daniel Levitin suggests that:

  • Soothing music can trigger release of oxytocin
  • Sad music triggers release of prolactin
  • An unknown kind of music triggers release of dopamine.

This may be related to my previous question about "psychoactive music"

Is there evidence to support the claim that music can trigger the release of specific neurotransmitters in the brain?
