"When people listen to music together, their neurons actually fire synchronously," says Daniel Levitin, Ph. D., a neuroscientist and musician. "For reasons scientists don't completely understand, this triggers the release of oxytocin, a hormone that helps you feel more tightly bonded to one another."
