I suggest that the question of whether music is an adaptation has been overemphasized in recent discussions of the biology and evolution of music, because the subtleties of this question combine with our poor fossil record for musical abilities of extinct hominids to render many of the key facts...
This study is an attempt to depict the learning process of AP in Japanese children in a cross-sectional design. In this study, 104 children of 4 to 10 years of age in a music school were tested. The children had been trained within a music education system of the school since they entered the...
This study examined the efficacy of Melodic Intonation Therapy (MIT) in a male singer (KL) with severe Broca’s aphasia. Thirty novel phrases were allocated to one of three experimental conditions: unrehearsed, rehearsed verbal production (repetition), and rehearsed verbal production with melody...
There is now a vigorous debate over the evolutionary status of music. Some scholars argue that humans have been shaped by evolution to be musical, while others maintain that musical abilities have not been a target of natural selection but reflect an alternative use of more adaptive cognitive...
We propose a continued evaluation of Darwin’s suggestion that musical functioning is sexually selected, because of recent evidence on sexual dimorphism and its relation to potentially musical activities. We also propose specifically that music may enhance social trust, and hence social...
We investigate the effects of different levels of delay (or latency) on the coordination, pace and timing regularity of musicians who are in remote locations—a situation encountered in an interactive network performance. Two pairs of musicians performed two Mozart duets while isolated visually...
One year ago we published a review article in Music Perception surveying and summarizing the empirical literature relevant to the evolutionary origins of music. Seven pieces commenting on our review have appeared in the present issue. In this reply we discuss some of the arguments made by the...
