Description - Language and Music as Cognitive Systems by Patrick Rebuschat

The past 15 years have witnessed an increasing interest in the comparative study of language and music as cognitive systems. Language and music are uniquely human traits, so it is not surprising that this interest spans practically all branches of cognitive science, including psychology, computer science, linguistics, cognitive neuroscience, and education. This book presents an interdisciplinary study of language and music, bringing together
a team of leading specialists across these fields. The volume is structured around four core areas in which the study of music and language has been particularly fruitful: (i) structural comparisons,
(ii) evolution, (iii) learning and processing, and (iv) neuroscience. As such it provides a snapshot of the different research strands that have focused on language and music, identifying current trends and methodologies that have been (or could be) applied to the study of both domains, and outlining future research directions. Language and Music as Cognitive Systems will be valuable in promoting the investigation of language and music by fostering interdisciplinary discussion and collaboration.
