The Neurosciences and Music IV: Learning and Memory was held at the University of Edinburgh from 9-12 June 2011, jointly hosted by the Mariani Foundation and the Institute for Music in Human and Social Development (IMHSD) and involving nearly 500 international delegates. Two opening workshops, three large and vibrant poster sessions and nine specialized symposia presented the most current research findings and raised a multitude of challenging questions. The conference proceedings are introduced by the workshop and symposia leaders, on the topics of working with children, rhythm perception, language processing, cultural learning, memory, musical imagery, neural plasticity, stroke rehabilitation, autism and amusia. The rich, interdisciplinary nature of this expanding research area is immediately evident, showing great promise for the future of music neuroscience.
Appendix to the volume is the Poster List, accessible through the Mariani Foundation's website.

How does human nervous system create musical experience? Can we harness that knowledge to help understand brain function and dysfunction? These questions have become a topic of fascination in the past decade not only to the specialists, psychologists and neuroscientists, but also to musicians, educators, clinicians, and the general public. To further our scientific understanding, this volume contains a selection of papers presented at the third Neurosciences of Music conference, held in June 2008 at McGill University in Montreal. The theme of the meeting, “Disorders and Plasticity,” sums up the focus, which was to see how basic science discoveries can be applied within the clinical domain, and to understand how musical functions both depend upon and modify brain activity and structure. Each chapter reflects the themes of a series of symposia, organized and edited by some of the most well-known investigators in these fields, providing a summary of the latest cutting-edge research in this rapidly moving field.
|eBriefing - SONGS OF EXPERIENCE: MUSIC AND THE BRAIN
Report multimediale conseguente al Convegno internazionale "The Neurosciences and Music - III"
Montreal, 25-28 giugno 2008
This eBriefing is a unique multimedia report on the Neuromusic III Conference realized in cooperation with the prestigious New York Academy of Sciences. Its multimedia elements include audio, video, photos, and slide shows; as well as links to related resources, including Web sites, books, scientific literature, and speaker information.
Most significantly, the research agenda for many subjects is presented in the form of "Open Questions" that reflect the lines of inquiry that speakers at our events are pursuing. These questions define the cutting edge of science, and indicate areas of research that will be probably undertaken in the months and years to come.
Both written and multimedia components within the eBriefing are fully searchable and contain tabs for easy navigation. Meeting reports can be displayed in a printer-friendly format.
To access the eBriefing, you must be registered.

|THE NEUROSCIENCES AND MUSIC II - From perception to performance|
Editors: G. Avanzini, S. Koelsch, L. Lopez e M. Majno
Pubblicazione conseguente al Convegno Internazionale "The Neurosciences and Music - II", Lipsia, 5-8 maggio 2005

The intricate relationships between music and human neurological makeup, as well as the ways in which music can influence neurological development, are explored in this volume, which is a continuation and expansion of two symposia that have preceded it, both of which have been published as Annals volumes. Researchers in the fields of neurophysiology, neuroimaging, mind-brain studies, and psychology present findings on the evaluation of neurological disorders and music, the relationship of music to development and language, and musical perception. The use and impact of music therapy is discussed in a roundtable format. Do animals have music? How is music similar to language? How is music represented mentally? This volume addresses these questions and others surrounding this exciting and growing field—a field that generates interest far beyond the boundaries of the neuroscientific world, encompassing education, performance, and the appreciation of music by all peoples. The book also offers articles written from the perspective of the fields of ethology and evolution, as well as papers on vocal learning, auditory perception, performance, and emotional response to music.
THE NEUROSCIENCES AND MUSIC - Mutual interactions and implications on developmental functions
Editors: Giuliano Avanzini, Carmine Faienza, Luisa Lopez, Maria Majno, Diego Minciacchi
Pubblicazione conseguente al Convegno Internazionale "The Neurosciences and Music"

Our understanding of how the production and perception of music correlates with brain anatomy and activity has been enormously enriched in recent years. Numerous studies have identified the similarities and differences between the processes underlying musical function and those related to speech. In addition, new studies have defined precise correlations between the development of motor skills and the perception and production of musical sequences. Musicians and composers, as well as neuroscientists, have benefited from new insights on how the brain functions, and a growing number of composers have begun to construct sounds and sound objects based on models and information that have come from biological and psychological studies. This Annals volume presents reports from researchers in the neurobiological, neuropsychological, and developmental aspects of music, as well as from musicians interested in elaborating the modalities and peculiarities of musical perception and construction. It is organized around several major themes: Cerebral functions related to music; how brain scientists use music; how musicians use brain research; and music and the developing brain.
