International Symposium on "Evolutionary Origins of Human Music"
Venue: Large Conference Room at Primate Research Institute, Kyoto University

Musical activities are widely observed across human populations. Music is not simply a cultural activity but it is often pointed out that music has a function to strengthen social bonds and facilitate empathy among people. Specifically recent empirical studies revealed that coordination of timing between people in musical activities helps them to increase affiliative feeling to each other. The question why and how we humans acquire and develop music has been catching researchers' attention but yet still we know few to understand evolutionary origins of cognitive abilities underlying music. To better understand this, we need to disentangle and understand cultural factors and also biological constraints behind music. In this symposium, we aim to garner cutting-edge research findings and deepen our knowledge on evolutionary origin of music in humans.
