Think for a moment about the special moments you have had in your life ... Now connect it with a song. Surely the one you chose is perfect! Because music has the ability to transmit everything we feel, believe, live and make us remember unique moments through its melodies.
He also accompanies us in the car, at home, on an outing and also when we decide to sit down to play and enjoy the best casino games. In fact, there are iconic songs that refer to gambling, luck, gambling, and more that have been recorded all over the world.
Our relationship with music reaches such a point that it is capable of altering our emotional state. Our brain has evolved and throughout the process it has been including sounds as a fundamental piece with which to create patterns together with emotions and thus, decode our environment.
Emotions are responsible for turning the sounds we perceive into something understandable. Without being conscious, we associate the sounds we appreciate, however subtle they may be, with emotions. This sound-emotion association makes us understand the situations we are in, allowing us to react according to the context. For example, we can detect happiness or sadness in a person only with the sound of their voice. That is, we associate sadness with a lower tone of voice and record than normal and the opposite with joy. It is the same with music.
Neuroscientific studies show that music has the ability to change moods by activating each of the emotional structures of the brain. Experiments have been carried out in which activity has been modulated in practically any emotional structure of the brain thanks to the emotions stimulated by music. Music is capable of awakening the nucleus of the creative brain structures of our emotional universe.
Listening to music activates the areas of the brain that are responsible for imitation and empathy. They are the areas where the mirror neurons are located that act reflecting the actions and intentions of others as if they were their own. In this way we can feel the pain of others, their joy, their sadness,… Perhaps this is why music is capable of altering our emotions and creating social ties; because it allows us to share feelings.
