The LINGUIST List is dedicated to providing information on language and language analysis, and to providing the discipline of linguistics with the infrastructure necessary to function in the digital world. LINGUIST is a free resource, run by linguistics students and faculty, and supported primarily by your donations. Please support LINGUIST List during the 2016 Fund Drive.

|Meeting Description:||Workshop: Shared Processing in Language and Music - What Neurocognition and Disorders Reveal (SPLM)
The workshop is embedded in the SMART Cognitive Sciences Conference that is held from March 25-28, 2015.
Traditionally, language and music have been regarded as two separate domains. Growing evidence, however, suggest that these two domains share at least certain processes. While there is more interesting research every day, part of what makes this field so exciting is that there are still two very different perspectives: Those who emphasize the differences between music and language and those who emphasize the similarities. Not only behavioral paradigms but more and more neurophysiological techniques are used to test hypotheses arising from those different perspectives and to investigate the neural underpinnings of possibly shared cognitive processes. At the same time, disorders that affect either faculty but supposedly spare the other, such as amusia and aphasia, are of great interest, too, as they can also lead to insights on what is shared by both domains and what is not.
This workshop aims at bringing together scientists from as diverse fields as linguistics, musicology, psychology, neurology and biology in order to foster an interdisciplinary dialogue that might create a better understanding of the shared processes in music and language.
