Music Psychology

What makes the musical experiences we have so significant?


I chose this topic because of stumbleupon. I was wondering through psychology topics, and one of them really caught my attention. The page was a picture Info-Graphic. It showed the different sound waves and when your brain experiences these frequencies. Although it is on the neurological side, it still can be tied into the psychological aspect. I am greatly interested in how certain songs can become so important to you, and evoke so much emotion. This question looks into how music can become an aid in cognitive function, as well as an emotional trigger for some.
