In the first comprehensive study of the relationship between music and language
from the standpoint of cognitive neuroscience, Aniruddh D. Patel challenges the
widespread belief that music and language are processed independently. This
volume argues that music and language share deep and critical connections,
and that comparative research provides a powerful way to study the cognitive
and neural mechanisms underlying these uniquely human abilities.
