27 October 2016, Symposium on Congenital Amusia

Date: Thursday 27 October 2016
Time: 11:00-17:30
Location: University library, Belle van Zuylenzaal, Singel 425, Amsterdam

On October 27, 2016 we will have a symposium on congenital amusia. Congenital amusia is a neuro-developmental disorder that is neither caused by insufficient exposure to music, nor by a hearing deficiency, brain damage or intellectual impairment. People with congenital amusia (amusics) face lifelong impairments in the musical domain (music often causes discomfort to them). They cannot detect a pitch difference between two adjacent tones if this difference is one semitone or less.
