What is "perfect pitch" and is it genetic?
« on: 01/10/2008 20:02:23 »
gabriel asked the Naked Scientists:

As a musician and a biomedical scientist, I've always wondered about what perfect pitch is in neurological terms. Are there any known genetic components to it? Or any brain physiology studies available?

What do you think?
