Description

'Music, Thought, and Feeling' surveys the interplay of psychology, neuroscience and music. The author begins by establishing a foundation in the evolution of music and the bulding blocks of music. The text then explores: how humans perceive music; the links between music and emotion; what the latest neuroimaging techniques tell us about music's effect on the brain; and the psychological processes involved in imagining, composing, and performing music. Written for students of psychology and music alike, 'Music, Thought, and Feeling' promises to become the defining text for the psychology of music course.show more
