Babies and Rhythm

Scientists have used electroencephalogram (EEG) analysis on newborns to demonstrate that babies are born with rhythm. Newborns' brains responded to breaks in a rock drum rhythm, even while the babies slept. This is an interesting insight into the human love of music and may allow early recognition of brain abnormalities.
