Title : BioMusicology and the Evolution of Human Musicality
Abstract : Like language, human music seems to have a biological basis, sometimes termed our “musicality”. Comparisons with nonhuman species show that some components of our own musicality are shared with other species, whether close relatives like great apes (drumming) or distant relatives like birds or whales (singing). Such comparisons also help us understand the neural mechanisms underlying these abilities, and provide a way to test hypotheses about why such abilities evolved.
