This chapter further analyses the theories in Chapter 27. It describes an experiment on the role of working memory in the processing of pitch in language and music. Working memory is a resource shared by both language and music, and the experiment focuses on tone perception in music and language. The results suggest that specific types of working memory are a factor in pitch discrimination tasks for both language and music.

Keywords:   working memory, pitch processing, language, music, tone perception, pitch discrimination
