Absolute pitch development

Thank you. And the question for me follows as to why so few people develop absolute pitch if the (mapping) structure exists and is used.

Subject: Message of twelve-tone serialism for auditory science

Actually, beyond the issue of consonance, the episode of twelve-tone
serialism (Hauer, Sch=F6nberg, etc.) may be of particular interest for so=
me other aspects of hearing.

The idea that tones can have a meaning beyond an intervallic context is
today well supported by our knowledge of pitch maps in the auditory brain.
In particular the pitch-class map (chroma map) in the auditory thalamus c=
an be considered as the primary neural origin of all types of absolute pitch
and absolute tone qualities.
