Where do the creeps in your arms and legs come from in cool movie moments or songs? Does it have a physiological meaning?


Answer from: Sergey Levy:

When enjoying music, when empathizing with movie characters, when experiencing deep feelings, we sometimes experience emotional excitement, which through the autonomic nervous system can lead to the appearance of goosebumps. If we had fur, it would stand up on end at this moment, and that would be our reaction to the excitement of the music. This ancient protective mechanism has long since lost its practical meaning for us, as have certain organs called rudiments (coccyx, appendix). But it indicates the depth of the emotional experience.

Medicine, music, physiology, skin
