Music, Language, and the Brain

Aniruddh D. Patel

Oxford University Press

As this book examines the relations between language and music through a wide variety or viewpoints, we have come to realize that both music and language should be perceived as a complex collection of subprocesses, that may be shared by both domains, and that can be exclusive to one or different with that of the other. Through exploring the similarities and differences of music and language in several different aspects, it is shown that music and language are indeed closely related if perceived as neural and cognitive systems, and that examining the mechanisms the mind utilizes when making sense of sound is greatly aided by comparing the several dimensions of music and language.

Keywords:   language, music, subprocesses, neural system, cognitive system, mechanisms, mind
