Test Your Sense of Pitch
Ever been told that you’re tone-deaf or have a tin ear? These relate to a sense of pitch—roughly speaking, the highness or lowness of a sound. Research shows that 2% to 5% of the U.S. population has problems with pitch perception. Want to test your own sense of pitch? Visit this NIH website and give it a listen.
