Patients with intractable epilepsy treated by anterior temporal lobectomy (Right, RT, n = 12; Left, LT, n = 9) and healthy controls (n = 12) with no musical training were prospectively evaluated with a standardized battery, including the Musical Aptitude Profile and the Seashore Tonal Memory Test. Before surgery, patients performed below controls (P less than 0.001), but there were no differences between RT and LT patients. After resection (2 weeks), RT patients showed a differential decline on… Expand
Neuropsychological Changes after Anterior Temporal Lobectomy Acute Effects on Memory, Language, and Music
TLDR
The finding of less disruption of memory and language 2–3 weeks after surgery in patients with early risks is consistent with the hypothesis that early brain injury is associated with reorganization of function. Expand
Preserved musical abilities following right temporal lobectomy.
TLDR
Findings indicate that the region resected on right temporal lobectomy in the present study is not essential for basic musical processing. Expand
Preserved musical abilities following right temporal lobectomy
TLDR
Findings indicate that the region resected on right temporal lobectomy in the present study is not essential for basic musical processing. Expand
Lateralização das funções musicais na epilepsia parcial
Fourteen right handed patients with partial epilepsy (Epileptic Group) and with a median age of 31 years were divided into two groups (Right and Left), according the laterality of paroxystic activityExpand
Rhythm and Melody in Children and Adolescents after Left or Right Temporal Lobectomy
TLDR
Rhythm but not melody was related to memory for the right lobectomy group, and Pitch and melodic contour show different patterns of lateralization after temporal lobectomy in childhood or adolescence. Expand
Functional neural changes associated with acquired amusia across different stages of recovery after stroke
TLDR
The findings reveal the dynamic nature of deficient activation and connectivity patterns in acquired amusia and highlight the role of dorsal networks in amusic recovery. Expand
Cerebral substrates for musical temporal processes.
TLDR
The findings suggest that left temporal lobe structures are predominantly involved in perceiving time-related perturbations in familiar tunes as well as in isochronous sequences, extending to the musical domain findings previously reported in speech. Expand
A Protective Effect of Musical Expertise on Cognitive Outcome Following Brain Damage?
TLDR
It is suggested that assessment of musician patients can greatly inform understanding of the influence of premorbid experience on postmorbid recovery, and some basic guidelines for the future evaluation of relevant patients are suggested. Expand
Creative innovation with temporal lobe epilepsy and lobectomy
TLDR
Whereas these results fail to support the left temporal lobe disinhibition postulate of enhanced figural creativity, the finding that the patients with RTS had better figural than verbal creativity suggests that their recurrent right hemispheric seizures lead to changes in their right hemisphere networks that facilitated visual creativity.

Discrimination and recognition of tonal melodies after unilateral cerebral excisions

TLDR
The results are interpreted as evidence for two processes in melodic discrimination, one due to short-term memory mechanisms, the other attributable to a deficit in processing complex auditory patterns. Expand

TLDR
Two aphasic right-handed professional musicians with left hemispheric lesions had disturbed musical function, especially musical alexia and agraphia, and in neither patient were those aspects of musical notation either closest to verbal language or most dependent upon temporal (sequential) processing maximally impaired.

Among the authors' patients was a bookkeeper with a severe form of sensory aphasia who could still draw up the annual balance sheet in spite of severe disturbances of speech and although he was unable to remember the names of his subordinates and used to refer to them incorrectly. Expand

Dichotically-Stimulated Ear Differences in Musicians and Nonmusicians
TLDR
A dichotic listening task involving violin melodies was given to 32 musicians and 32 nonmusician, demonstrating that musicians mainly use the left hemishpher to process musical stimuli, while nonmusicians use the right. Expand

TLDR
This case provides some evidence in favour of right hemisphere dominance for music in music after a conductor suddenly developed global aphasia and severe ideomotor apraxia as a result of an infarct in the territory of the left middle cerebral artery. Expand
Hemispheric asymmetries in the perception of musical intervals as a function of musical experience and family handedness background
TLDR
This study examines the effect of musical experience and family handedness background on the categorization of musical intervals (two-note chords) and showed that musicians' performance is superior to nonmusicians' and musicians and nonmusician differ significantly on their ear of preference. Expand
Modes of processing melodies and ear asymmetry in non-musicians
TLDR
A relationship between ways of listening reported by the subjects and direction of ear asymmetry supports the hypothesis that analytic and global modes of processing are typical of the left and right hemispheres, respectively and suggests that a predominant involvement of theleft hemisphere in melody recognition does not necessarily require formal musical training.
