MUSIC RELEASES DOPAMINE
in a post-christmas music quiz, the bbc's counterpoint asked a contestant which neurotransmitter in particular is released by listening to music. the correct answer, of course, was dopamine. i mean, where do i even begin with this?
this story was in episode 23 #dopamine #music #serotonin #quiz
the error bar says
after six days of quarantine, the last thing i needed was a BBC radio 4 quiz host telling me that listening to music specifically releases dopamine in the brain, that dopamine is the 'happy hormone', that that's all there is to say on the subject of music neuroscience & that the contestant who answered 'serotonin' was, in fact, wrong.
i will not patronise the good nerds of the error bar by wasting precious seconds explaining why neither the question, nor the answer, makes any sense at all.
