Abstract or Description

Despite evidence for music-specific mechanisms at the level of pitch-pattern representations, the most fascinating aspect of music is its transmodality. Recent psychological and neuroscientific evidence suggests that music is unique in the coupling of perception, cognition, action, and emotion. This potentially explains why music has been since time immemorial almost inextricably linked to healing processes and should continue to be.
