There are new music and movies coming out every day. Many of these new releases turn out of being popular while there are also those who fail to make an impression. But among all of these songs and movies, we do come across a few which have played a vital role in our lives and have really moved the way we feel about things. But how do music and movies make that emotional connection with a human being and trigger it so much that they leave an unforgettable impression? If we try and take a look, we can find many people who draw inspiration from particulars songs or music or have been inspired by a movie and have made significant changes to their lives in order to lead a life according to their understanding. But how does it all happen? How is that emotional connection is established that leaves a person moved?
Various researches have been conducted on trying to understand and develop a connection between music and human emotion. Many of such researches have come down to conclude one common result that the human mind relates emotion to movement. And that has been going on for centuries since our ancestors. Researches have shown that while listening to music, the sound taps into the brain network and forms a connection with the brain’s understanding of human movement and links it to different emotions. And this connection is universally the same across different kinds of people.
It is believed that the human mind all across the world forms similar connections and these representations have been understood to be very similar to each other. So that is why different types of music are able to move people depending upon the type of music being played. We might have seen people listen to motivational music in order to get themselves pumped up or we may see people forming a connection with mellow and sad music whenever they are feeling similar emotions? This happens because the human mind relates all these emotions to the kind of movements the music is creating. Similarly, in the case of movies, the human mind is able to make a connection with the story of the movie and whatever is being displayed on the screen. So whenever we see a person smile or make a joke in a movie, we tend to laugh with them and this connection is the same for other emotions as well. It is the human mind making a connection to all the expressions being shown on screen and making you react in a similar way.
