Abstract: Todd, Cousins, and Lee (2007) have presented some intriguing data suggesting that body size, as measured by standard anthropometric indices, is related to the preferred beat period in a perceptual task. Curiously, however, they did not find a significant sex difference, even though the women in their sample were clearly smaller than the men. Another recent study of preferred spontaneous tempo (McAuley et al., 2006) likewise failed to find a sex difference in a large sample of young adults. It is unclear why body size should have an effect only within each sex group.
