First, the opportunity to generate, analyze, and transform sounds by computer is no longer limited to a few researchers with access to large multi-user facilities, but is now available to individual investigators on a widespread basis. Second, dramatic advances in the field of neuroscience have profoundly influenced thinking about the way that music is processed in the brain. Third, collaborations between psychologists and musicians, which were evolving at the time the first edition was written, are now quite common, and to a large extent these two groups speak a common language and agree on basic philosophical issues. The Psychology of Music, Second Edition has been completely revised to bring the reader the most up-to-date information and additional subject matter, and new contributions examine all of these important developments. The book is intended as a comprehensive reference source for musicians, psychologists, and students interested in and studying this exciting psychological discipline.
