A natural history of song Theories of the origins of music claim that the music faculty is shaped by the functional design of the human mind. On these ideas, musical behavior and musical structure are expected to exhibit species-wide regularities: music should be characterized by human universals.

However, the mechanisms underlying these effects remain unclear.  In this presentation, I will propose the idea that rhythmic entrainment induced by listening to music, including synchronized movements with musical rhythms, might contribute to the…

No efficient evidence-based therapies are currently available to…
