This volume explores, across disciplines, the neurobiological basis for the creation and appreciation of music. Various papers examine both the structure and the function of brain pathways involved in the processing of complex sounds that lead to the perception of music. Evolutionary aspects of music recognition are examined, and interesting theories of sound appreciation across cultures are revealed.
