Study group discussion: HSV encephalitis and musical hallucinations

Fun fact: HSV encephalitis is associated with musical hallucinations.

It's due to disruption of connections between the sensory cortex and reticular formation.

Is that specific for HSV only? Like the way auditory hallucinations is characteristic of schizophrenia?

No, it occurs in epilepsy, intoxication and other focal brain lesions as well.

I've heard that musical hallucinations occurs in people who listen to music for long periods of time. Not sure if it's true.
