    Default Do monkeys like music?

    I mean since there's a .1% difference in their DNA to us, I'm just curious. If zoo's put in speakers and made monkeys gather together to dance and stuff, they might catch on. I know it's a funny mental image, but it would be a breakthrough in understanding!

    McDermott and Hauser have recently shown that although monkeys show some types of preferences for sound, preferences for music are found only in humans. This suggests that music might be a relatively recent adaptation in human evolution. Here, I focus on the research methods used by McDermott and Hauser, and consider the findings in relation to infancy research and music psychology.
