Cringe-Worthy: The Fingernails on a Chalkboard Effect

The study of the interaction between how our ears and brain respond to sound is called psychoacoustics or sound perception.  As audience members, we can perceive a sound as being a pleasing experience or not and anywhere in between.  But, this perception isn't formed merely by using our ears.  The connections between our ears, brain, and nervous system let us feel the effects of sound with our entire body.  This concept of physically hearing and psychologically perceiving sound helps to connect us to the television show, movie, or video game we might be enjoying.
