Study shows people who aren’t moved by music have less functional connectivity between some brain regions

While some in the field have theorized that it is likely due to reduced communication in the brain between the regions responsible for processing music and those responsible for generating a response, none have tested the idea. To provide a basis for comparison, the researchers recruited 30 more volunteers, 15 of whom believed themselves to respond in a common way to music they liked and 15 individuals who thought they responded more strongly to music they liked than the average person.
