about

Research in music is a multidisciplinary matter. Experts from very different fields in science report the most recent data from their own research and thereby show today's knowledge concerning music and neuropsychological sciences. This includes the developing and adult brain, neurological and psychiatric diseases as well as the battery of the most recent development in brain imaging techniques.
This book offers an excellent introduction to new scientific efforts in understanding both neuronal and psychic mechanisms when listening to or performing music.
