Music is meant to entertain people, but to some, it doesn’t sound very impressive when listened to. Medical studies reveal that people who don’t find the music interesting have anhedonia. This condition is not common as less than ten percent of the population suffer from anhedonia. Research reveals that there is no major cause of this condition as it is normal to affect people. Your background also determines your passion for music, as a poor entertainment background may not let you cherish music. If you are brought up where music is not cherished, you might be influenced by such a background.
When you listen to music, there is a connection between your brain and emotional behavior. This makes you develop a passion for what you’re listening to and connects your mind to it. Anhedonia causes your brain to be disconnected from your emotions, and the result is a lack of interest in such a song. The type of music being played determine whether you develop an interest or not. For instance, pop music awakens your spirit when listened to. Listening to pop music gives people happiness due to its lyrics. The tracks people listen to makes them not like music.
Humans love music with good beats to awaken their dull spirits. People lose interest in music when it has no good beat, though its lyrics might be composed well. There are certain functions that your brain does which you might not be aware of. Your brain senses your mood to determine your psychological state of well being. The grey part of a human’s sensor controls how your system communicates with its external environment. Things happening in your environment are noticed by the grey part of your sensor, which determines your reaction to them. Failure of the human sense organs can cause a disconnection between his sensor and the environment.
Skin conductance refers to your reaction to different songs when listened to. Medical researchers mentioned that failure to react to sounds could be caused by skin conductance. Skin conductance explains how tensed a human body is when sounds are processed. Your interest in a particular song will affect your reaction when it is played. Skin conductance helps explain how tension occurs within the body system and its reaction to a loved or hated music. The music you don’t like will not draw your attention because your emotion is not connected to such a song.
A person diagnosed with anhedonia doesn’t hate music but lacks any feeling due to a lack of connection between his brain and emotions. Anhedonia can be likened to a learning disability due to a poor connection between human sense organs. The research revealed that this condition could be caused by depression or other brain-related diseases such as poor listening ability or memory loss. People with a condition can suffer from it for a long or short period depending on its causes, though no illness can directly be attributed to it. The structural part could be permanent if not revealed and treated well by a doctor.
