The Power of Entertaiment


Entertaiment is a form of play that can stimulate the brain to release seratonin and dopamine. It can also be stimulating for the body through exercise or sports, or for the soul through music and dance. Its power is demonstrated by the way familiar forms of entertainment, such as the Scheherazade story in the Persian professional storytelling tradition, can inspire retellings in different media: composers have made orchestral works, directors have made films, and games developers have created innovative virtual worlds.
