In short music has the capability of invoking emotions in us, and when you listen to a song it has its effects on various parts of the brain. Scientific studies have proven that, music is capable of changing our mood and can help us concentrate.

Studies have even shown that, parts of the brain which are responsible for light and vision can respond to music. In fact various parts of the brain can be activated by music.

We listen to music just to give a boost to our mood when we are having tough time. Or we listen to music just to keep ourselves awake and active when we are driving.

Study has shown that, listening to your favorite piece of music can help you come out of bad mood, by releasing feel good chemical dopamine.

Music even helps us to concentrate, a new 'digital tonic' called Ubrain, which can be downloaded onto smart phones, claims of being able to, help people focus, energize, relax and even wake up.

You have to choose various kinds of music for various kinds of purposes, like you can listen to up-beat songs when exercising, or running.
