Abstract: In recent years there has been a tremendous upsurge in the interest musicians have shown in the brain. Consider these titles as just one indication; Music and the Brain: Studies in the Neurology of Music (Critchley and Hensen, 1977); Art Education and Brain Research (Regelski, 1978); "Neurophysiology and Musical Behavior" (in Handbook of Music Psychology, Hodges, 1980); Music, Mind, and Brain: The Neuropsychology of Music (Clynes, 1982). In addition, numerous research studies on music and the brain have been published in both music and nonmusic journals.
