This chapter provides a detailed and critical overview of the neuroscientific research dealing with music and music education. It focuses on ideas helpful to music education from what is known about music and the brain. The chapter is organized into three sections. The first section is about strategies for conducting neuromusical research, reviewing the methodological approaches to conducting neuroscientific research in music. The neuroscience tools reviewed in this section have in many ways revolutionized the ability to examine both the function and structure of the brain. The second section reviews the findings related to overall development, selected topics, and theories and theoretical areas. The last section is a generalized summary of findings and recommendations and considerations for future research directions.

Keywords:   neuromusical research, neuromusical tools, animal research, brain
