What People are Saying About This
This is an important collection of scholarly articles large in scope but perfectly focused. The effort seems devoted to countering its subtitle. After reading it you will discover that the relationships of language music and the brain are far less mysterious than they were when you began. This is no small accomplishment and Michael Arbib and his colleagues deserve to be congratulated.
