Why does music make us dance? This is truly impressive indeed. Just saw it again at our youngest kid the last months, she could not crawl, but as soon as there were some rhythmic beats she started moving her whole body to the beats.
Scientists in Australia have looked into this question and discovered that the answer lies in the bass. The researchers studied how our brains process low-frequency sounds, which usually form the rhythmic basis of music. They played high- and low-frequency sounds to people and watched their brains' reaction using electroencephalography (EEG).
