Genome-Wide Copy Number Variation Analysis in Extended Families and Unrelated Individuals Characterized for Musical Aptitude and Creativity in Music
Music perception and practice represent complex cognitive functions of the human brain. Recently, evidence for the molecular genetic background of music related phenotypes has been obtained. In orderExpand

Association of the arginine vasopressin receptor 1A (AVPR1A) haplotypes with listening to music
Music is listened in all cultures. We hypothesize that willingness to produce and perceive sound and music is social communication that needs musical aptitude. Here, listening to music was surveyedExpand

Association and Promoter Analysis of AVPR1A in Finnish Autism Families
The arginine vasopressin receptor 1A gene (AVPR1A) is known to affect social communication and has been reported to associate with autism in several studies. Given that the microsatellite RS1 and aExpand

A genome-wide linkage and association study of musical aptitude identifies loci containing genes related to inner ear development and neurocognitive functions
Humans have developed the perception, production and processing of sounds into the art of music. A genetic contribution to these skills of musical aptitude has long been suggested. We performed aExpand
