Washington, Mar 7 - Even though music is believed to be a universal language to many, a new study suggests that music doesn't speak to everyone.
There are people who are perfectly able to experience pleasure in other ways who simply don't get music in the way the rest of us do.

"The identification of these individuals could be very important to understanding the neural basis of music-that is, to understand how a set of notes [is] translated into emotions," Josep Marco-Pallares of the University of Barcelona, said.
