Varieties of Musical Disorders
The Montreal Battery of Evaluation of Amusia (MBEA) is proposed to use because it is arguably the best tool currently available and theoretically motivated and satisfies important psychometric properties.
Brain organization for music processing.
Results emanating from both lesion studies and neuroimaging techniques are reviewed and integrated for each of these musical functions, and a currently debated issue regarding the putative existence of music-specific neural networks is addressed.
Congenital amusia: a group study of adults afflicted with a music-specific disorder.
The present study convincingly demonstrates the existence of congenital amusia as a new class of learning disabilities that affect musical abilities.

Evidence of double dissociation between the processing of the pitch dimension and theprocessing of rhythm was obtained, providing further support for the need to fractionate musical perceptual abilities in order to arrive at a theory as to how the two hemispheres cohere to produce a musical interpretation of the auditory input.
Modularity of music processing
A functional architecture for music processing that captures the typical properties of modular organization is proposed, which rests essentially on the analysis of music-related deficits in neurologically impaired individuals but provides useful guidelines for exploring the music faculty in normal people, using methods such as neuroimaging.

The electroencephalogram is recorded while participants listened to a musical beat and imagined a binary or a ternary meter on this beat, and it is found that the beat elicits a sustained periodic EEG response tuned to the beat frequency.

Happy, sad, scary and peaceful musical excerpts for research on emotions
Three experiments were conducted in order to validate 56 musical excerpts that conveyed four intended emotions (happiness, sadness, threat and peacefulness). In Experiment 1, the musical clips were…
