Mozart's musical genius was demonstrated early in his life when, at the age of 14, he transcribed from memory the complete Miserere by Allegri after just one hearing. How is such genius explained in terms of brain function? What mental processes enable a musician to convert a melody into standard musical notation?
Psychologist Professor Christopher Longuet-Higgins talks to John Maddox about his theory of how the brain perceives and translates music.
