In this edition of our weekly science magazine Research File, we speak with Dr. John Sloboda, professor of psychology at Kew University, about his research into why certain features of music—both classical and pop—elicit an intense emotional response.
Mindy Ran reports on an international animation series about animals and why it is so enormously successful, “The Animals of Farthing Wood”.
Finally, we discuss virtual reality and molecular modelling.
