ABSTRACT. Pressnitzer et al. affirm that sounds that activate the same or largely overlapping populations of neurons are perceived as forming a single stream. Cousineau et al. hold that to understand speech or appreciate music, one has to process sequences of sounds (pitch has a peculiar importance for human listeners), and reassess the processing of pitch sequences and loudness sequences. Kostek claims that the relationship between music and motion is fundamental to music processing. Koelsch et al. emphasize that irregular musical events (such as music-syntactically irregular chords) give rise to emotional responses. (pp. 305–310)
