Music Instinct

(In Persian)

Why does music pervade our lives and those of all known human beings living today and in the recent past? Why do we feel compelled to engage in musical activity, or at least simply enjoy listening to music even if we choose not to actively participate? I argue that this is because musicality – communication using variations in pitch, rhythm, dynamics and timbre, by a combination of the voice, body (as in dance), and material culture- was essential to the lives of our pre-linguistic hominin ancestors. As a consequence we have inherited a desire to engage with music, even if this has no adaptive benefit for us today as a species whose communication system is dominated by spoken language.


Music and Cognitive Abilities

(In Persian)

In this chapter, we review the available evidence concerning associations between music and cognitive abilities. We use the term "cognitive abilities" to refer to all aspects of cognition (e.g., memory, language, visuospatial abilities) including general intelligence. We use the term "music" as an all-encompassing one that includes music aptitude, music listening, and music lessons, and we use the term "associations" because it does not imply causation. Our focus is on documented associations-regardless of the direction of causation-between cognitive abilities, on the one hand, and music aptitude, music listening, and music lessons, on the other. In each case, we examine the possibility of a causal relationship between music and cognition.
