A lot of the interest in the neurology of music seems to focus on a special kind of physical experience which people have in relation to music. That experience consists of what some call: "chills" which arrive as the consequence of listening to music which one finds very moving. I have personally experienced those "chills" as i am sure many people have. Relying on an experience which is intersubjectively verified such as a sensation of chills, neurological investigations look for the causes. It is useful to begin with an experience as a starting point for a neurological investigation. That is precisely what the painter does.
