Does genetics influence musical ability?
While music is ubiquitous to all known human cultures, individual differences in music ability have sparked intense debates regarding the relative importance of nature and nurture in shaping music ability.
Singing is an ideal paradigm for investigating the genetic basis of music ability. Using an online twin study and a set of singing tasks, this Music on the Mind investigates the genetic basis of singing by disentangling the contribution of genetic and environmental influences.
