Beschreibung: Linguistic evolution is a prime topic for the IMPRS, but the human voice can also be used for communicating nonverbal social signals, by spontaneously using prosody and intonation. The topic of this project is to investigate the degree to which (different aspects of) the human voice and music have evolved in parallel, and today are mediated by common brain mechanisms. Findings that individuals with congenital amusia have (slightly) reduced abilities in emotion perception from the voice, and that speaker identification from the voice can benefit both from musical training and from speaking a tonal language, suggest that cultural training may enhance human capacities to retrieve social cues from voices. Here we plan to study the recognition of kinship (genetic relationship), which has never been investigated for human voices. We consider this approach relevant and promising, because a recent study with old world primates (mandrills) has suggested efficient kin recognition from vocalisations, and because human kinship recognition from faces is well demonstrated. This project will build both on our methodological expertise in voice research, and on recent evidence of common perceptual recalibration mechanisms for the perception of timbre in human voices and music.
