According to the citation, they received the prize "for their research assessing the effect of listening to opera, on heart transplant patients who are mice." The annual prizes, meant to entertain and encourage global research and innovation, are awarded by the Annals of Improbable Research as a whimsical counterpart to the Nobel Prizes which will be announced next month.© Japan Today
