Episode 2: Why we love music: A neuroscience perspective

Music has existed in human societies since prehistory, perhaps in part because it allows expression and regulation of emotion, and evokes pleasure. This lecture presents findings from cognitive neuroscience that bear on the question of how we get from perception of sound patterns to pleasurable responses.
