Shivers down the spine in poetry and music

The wise reader reads the book of genius not with his heart, not so much with his brain, but with his spine.

In this study, we compare the physiological and neural correlates of music- and poetry-induced chills/goosebumps. The goosebumps episodes will be identified using a mini-camera (goosecam). Individuals who are aware of experiencing goosebumps in response to music and poetry are invited to participate in our study.
