  • Short- and long-term memory for pitch and non-pitch contours: Insights from congenital amusia. [Journal Article]
    Brain Cogn 2019; 136:103614Graves JE, Pralus A, … Tillmann B
  • Congenital amusia is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by deficits in music perception, including discriminating and remembering melodies and melodic contours. As non-amusic listeners can perceive contours in dimensions other than pitch, such as loudness and brightness, our present study investigated whether amusics' pitch contour deficits also extend to these other auditory dimensions.…
  • Neural architectures of music - Insights from acquired amusia. [Review]
    Neurosci Biobehav Rev 2019; 107:104-114Sihvonen AJ, Särkämö T, … Soinila S
  • The ability to perceive and produce music is a quintessential element of human life, present in all known cultures. Modern functional neuroimaging has revealed that music listening activates a large-scale bilateral network of cortical and subcortical regions in the healthy brain. Even the most accurate structural studies do not reveal which brain areas are critical and causally linked to music pr…
  • Music and emotion in Alzheimer's disease. [Journal Article]
    Alzheimers Res Ther 2019; 11(1):69Arroyo-Anlló EM, Dauphin S, … Gil R
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our findings found a global impairment of music competences in Alzheimer patients with cognitive and emotional troubles. Nevertheless, the performances in the recognition test of musical emotions showed a trend towards a performance difference. We can suggest that Alzheimer's disease currently presents an aphaso-agnoso-apractic-amusia syndrome.
  • History of Amusia. [Historical Article]
    Front Neurol Neurosci 2019; 44:83-88Kawamura M, Miller MW
  • We live in a world surrounded by sound. Throughout life, we are exposed to music: from lullabies and songs taught at school to instrumental music both heard and played for pleasure. Every nation, along with its own language, has unique forms of music and dance. "Music knows no boundaries," as the saying goes. Just as language impairment is known as "aphasia," impairment of the perception of music…
  • Abnormal neural responses to harmonic syntactic structures in congenital amusia. [Journal Article]
    Psychophysiology 2019; 56(9):e13394Zhou L, Liu F, … Jiang C
  • In music, harmonic syntactic structures are organized hierarchically through local and long-distance dependencies. This study investigated whether congenital amusia, a neurodevelopmental disorder of pitch perception, is associated with impaired processing of harmonic syntactic structures. For stimuli, we used harmonic sequences containing two phrases, where the first phrase ended with a half cade…
