A student asked me today what's the physiolgical basis of being tone deaf. Does anybody know a good reference(s)? Or better still want to give me a quick run down on the state of knowledge? I assume 2A2IFC experiments have been done and wonder how far apart the freqs have to be for subjects to be considered tone deaf. thanks, Judy
