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.
