Musical Brain

Abstract

Music is a historical and cross-cultural phenomenon that has been increasingly investigated with advancing neuroscientific techniques to reveal widely distributed neural networks enabling the processing, production, and experience of multiple musical variables. Musical deficits (e.g., congenital amusia) and musical exceptions (e.g., absolute pitch) as well as individuals with musical training provide insights into complicated experiential and genetic factors contributing to the role of music in neurobehavioral processes such as learning, memory, and emotion.
