Summary note
The Oxford Handbook of Music and the Brain is a compendium of current research on music in the human brain. An international roster of 54 authors from 13 countries have written over 350,000 words that are organised into 33 chapters. Major themes include Music, the Brain, and Cultural Contexts; Music Processing in The Human Brain; Neural Responses to Music; Musicianship and Brain Function; Developmental Issues in Music and the Brain; Music, the Brain, and Health; and the Future. Each chapter offers a thorough review of the current status of research literature as well as an examination of limitations of knowledge and suggestions for future advancement and research efforts.
