The Neurosciences and Music

Just received my hard copy of this issue:

This volume stems from the conference “The Neurosciences and Music IV: Learning and Memory,” held in Edinburgh, Scotland from 9–12, June 2011. The volumes focuses on four themes: infants and children, adults: musicians and non-musicians, disabilities and aging-related issues, and therapy and rehabilitation. Featured papers cover a range of topics including the cultural neuroscience of music, memory and learning in music performance, the impact of musical experience on cerebral language processing, and mechanisms of rhythm and meter learning over the life span. Contributions will be of interest to not only from neuroscientists, psychologists and students but also clinical neurologists, clinical psychologists, therapists, music performers and educators, as well as musicologists.
