Music & the Mind eJournal

Very few fields have attracted as much attention to music in recent years as the study of music and the brain. Intelligence, broadly defined and conceived, as it converges with music is one of the areas of discussion for this eJournal. All interdisciplinary areas of enquiry for this field are invited, including: music and cognition, music and neuroscience, music education and the brain, music and evolutionary biology, music and communication, music perception and cognition, and neurological processes engaged during musical activity, such as auditory memory and its encoding process. The scope of the eJournal is broad, including research ranging from the most specific cognitive processes - such as how the mind monitors the beat - to broader concepts of determining familiar and unfamiliar music. This eJournal provides a shared platform for research that draws on both the discipline of cognitive neuroscience and the music social sciences.
