Abstract: One area of music research that has received increasing attention over the past twenty-five years is the study of music and the brain, or neuromusical research. Although the earliest studies can be traced back more than 100 years (e.g., Proust, 1866), there was a surge of interest in the 1970s with a focus on "music and the right brain." Contemporary research, though far from giving us final or complete answers, is providing many new and exciting findings.
