Abstract

Got rhythm? Most of us do – at least a little bit. Believe it or not, even babies can feel the beat of a rhythm [1]. However, science has documented the first case of a person who could not dance to the beat. His name is Mathieu, and he is an intelligent, talented – even musical – guy with no other known brain problems, except, he cannot find the beat in music.
