On December 1st the CBC debuted an episode of The Nature of Things with David Suzuki titled “I Got Rhythm: The Science of Song.” The episode explored the science behind how music affects the body and the brain and also looked at the fascinating relationship humans have with music. One segment featured an interview with Dr. Schutz discussing how pitch, modality, and timing cues contribute to the expression of emotion in music. Dr. Trainor, another researcher from McMaster University, was also featured on the broadcast.
