Abstract:

I am pleased to announce the publication of an up-to-date textbook for the
field of music cognition.

The book focuses on the field of music cognition but also cover topics that
may be of interest to linguists, including:

- cognitive connections between music and speech
- evolutionary accounts of music and language
- acoustic foundations of hearing
- investigations of syntactic processes using brain imaging techniques
(EEG, MEG, fMRI, PET)
- emotional codes in music and speech prosody
- auditory development
- effects of music training on reading ability
- rhythmic structure

and many other topics. The book would be ideal as an undergraduate
textbook, or for anyone who wants a review of current issues in the various
subdisciplines of music cognition. It includes sound examples, sidebars,
and other features. Additional information may be found at the Oxford
University Press websites, and of course Amazon and other e-commerce sites,
as follows:
