Great to see this study spreading around the world! It is a very well-executed and thought out study that has generated new knowledge about a phenomenon that is central to understanding what music is and why it is such an important useless thing. I liked this pop-sci video as well, it doesn’t misunderstand or oversimplify the story or try to make the study more sexy than it is, it provides good examples and translates the study to uncomplicated English very well. The standard of science writing and reporting that you can access online is actually very high these days. Well worth spending a bit of time finding the sources and stories you like subscribing to their RSS feeds or Twitter streams and using those as a research tool. Great for getting a general understanding of a topic, to deepen it later using “traditional” “authoritative” sources, such as research articles etc.
