The Week In Studies: Fish Like Bach, Workplaces Hate Millennials, And Facebook Regret
Here's something you didn't know about the world: over at Japan's Keio University, there are scientists huddled around pigeons and goldfish, playing them classical music to try and figure out their favorite composer.
We personally hadn't given much thought to whether pigeons preferred Bach or Stravinsky, but maybe we're short-sighted. (They prefer Bach, by the way. So did sparrows. What an obvious choice, man.) Goldfish could differentiate between classical music, surprising researchers who had mistakingly believed them to be fairly stupid creatures. Scientists believe that they, too, lean towards Bach. Somewhere, Stravinsky is rolling over in his grave.
