(p.145) Chapter 8 Music and language cognition compared II: Production
The Improvising Mind

Aaron L. Berkowitz

Oxford University Press

This chapter compares music and language cognition with respect to production, examining improvisation and spontaneous speech from both theoretical and neurobiological perspectives. Cognition in improvisation is compared to that during spontaneous speech, using the theoretical framework put forth by Willem J. M. Levelt in his 1989 book Speaking. The neural correlates of improvisation are compared to those underlying spontaneous speech as elucidated by recent brain imaging studies.

Keywords:   improvisation, music-language comparisons, spontaneous speech, psycholinguistics, music cognition, J. M. Levelt
