Musicality Explained
Chords of the Brain

December; that time of the year when you praise yourself with your amazing and unique music taste while unwrapping your Spotify or voting for the Top2000. Music plays an important role in many people’s lives. We enjoy listening to it on the radio or live at a concert, while many people also learn how to play instruments themselves. Why do we value music so much; are there biological or social explanations for this?

Since the first vaccines against Covid-19 were approved, at the end of 2020, the question of where they come from and who makes them, has acquired a new significance.
