Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
A comprehensive survey of the latest neuroscientific research into the effects of music on the brain Covers a variety of topics fundamental for music perception, including musical syntax, musical semantics, music and action, music and emotion Includes general introductory chapters to engage a broad readership, as well as a wealth of detailed research material for experts Offers the most empirical (and most systematic) work on the topics of neural correlates of musical syntax and musical semantics Integrates research from different domains (such as music, language, action and emotion both theoretically and empirically, to create a comprehensive theory of music psychology
Making and listening to music engages a large array of psychological processes, including perception, attention, learning and memory, syntactic processing, the processing of meaning, and social cognition. This richness makes music the ideal tool to investigate human psychology and the workings of the human brain, and in recent years neuroscientists have increasingly used this tool to inform and extend their ideas. This book offers a comprehensive survey of the current state of knowledge in the cross-disciplinary field of music psychology.
An expert in his field, Stefan Koelsch establishes basic neuroscientific, music-theoretical, and music-psychological concepts, before presenting the brain correlates of music perception, musical syntax, musical semantics, music and action, and music and emotion.
Koelsch synthesizes all these conceptual threads into a new theory of music psychology. His theory integrates different areas such as music, language, action, and emotion that are traditionally treated as separate domains.Ver Descripción del producto

Brain & Music is a 2012 update of Dr. Koelsch's important 2000 essay on this subject. Although it is already somewhat dated, it is the best compact summary of the state of the art of which I am aware. It is, however, a textbook, not a beach read. Dr. Koelsch is not a science-popularizer, like the authors of some other very good books on this subject. He is a scientist, writing for those with scientific backgrounds. Perhaps the major stumbling block for many will be the neuroanatomy. Still, the later chapters are packed with knowledge and one could skip to them and still profit handsomely. Readers looking for a more accessible introduction to this thrilling field might prefer--for example--Dan Levitin's "This is your brain on music," or even Jourdain's old "Music, the brain, and ecstasy." But if one wished to teach an inspiring course on this new discipline, Brain & Music would probably be the go-to textbook.
