Do Chimpanzees Like Music?

Do Chimpanzees Like Music? It’s a question that recently popped up again after the publication of a study in the Journal of Experimental Psychology: Animal Learning and Cognition, co-authored by primatologist Frans de Waal. However, researchers disagree on primates' sensitivity to music.

Wat apen in muziek horen blijft de vraag [Dutch]

De wetenschap steggelt over de vraag of chimpansees van muziek houden. De vraag is van belang omdat het ontstaan en het nut van muziek en muzikaliteit nog altijd een raadsel zijn.
