Parallel generational tasks for music and language were compared using positron emission tomography. Amateur musicians vocally improvised melodic or linguistic phrases in response to unfamiliar, auditorily presented melodies or phrases. Core areas for generating melodic phrases appeared to be in left Brodmann area (BA) 45, right BA 44, bilateral temporal planum polare, lateral BA 6, and pre‐SMA. Core areas for generating sentences seemed to be in bilateral posterior superior and middle temporal… 
Cerebral Activations Related to Audition-Driven Performance Imagery in Professional Musicians
TLDR
The activation paradigm implied that subjects listened to two-part polyphonic music, while either critically appraising the performance or imagining they were performing themselves, suggesting the recruitment of a general ‘mirror-neuron’ circuitry.
University of Groningen Cerebral Activations Related to Audition-Driven Performance Imagery in Professional
Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) was used to study the activation of cerebral motor networks during auditory perception of music in professional keyboard musicians (n = 12). The

The impact of rhythm complexity on brain activation during simple singing: an event-related fMRI study.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that bilateral pars orbitalis, insula, and left cingulate gyrus are core areas whose activity correlates with rhythm complexity, which suggests a directed use of the singing voice e.g., in order to support language rehabilitation in patients.
Decoding temporal structure in music and speech relies on shared brain resources but elicits different fine-scale spatial patterns.
TLDR
Functional magnetic resonance imaging is used to measure brain activity patterns in 20 right-handed nonmusicians as they listened to natural and temporally reordered musical and speech stimuli matched for familiarity, emotion, and valence.
Task‐dependent modulation of functional connectivity between hand motor cortices and neuronal networks underlying language and music: a transcranial magnetic stimulation study in humans
TLDR
The findings demonstrate that right‐hemisphere preponderance of music is nevertheless present, and transcranial magnetic stimulation may constitute a useful tool to further investigate the relationship between cortical representations of motor functions, music and language using comparative approaches.

Words in melody: an H215O PET study of brain activation during singing and speaking
TLDR
Results indicate that the production of words in song is associated with activation of regions within right hemisphere areas that are not mirror-image homologues of left hemisphere perisylvian language areas, and suggest that multiple neural networks may be involved in different aspects of singing.

Opposite hemispheric lateralization effects during speaking and singing at motor cortex, insula and cerebellum
TLDR
Findings corroborate the assumption that the left insula supports the coordination of speech articulation and suggest that the right insula might mediate temporo-spatial control of vocal tract musculature during overt singing.
When that tune runs through your head: a PET investigation of auditory imagery for familiar melodies.
TLDR
It is concluded that areas of right auditory association cortex, together with right and left frontal cortices, are implicated in imagery for familiar tunes, in accord with previous behavioral, lesion and PET data.
Speech production: Wernicke, Broca and beyond.
TLDR
The evidence from this study indicates that normal communicative speech is dependent on a number of left hemisphere regions remote from the classic language areas of Wernicke and Broca, and Destruction or disconnection of discrete left extrasylvian and perisylVian cortical regions will account for the qualitative and quantitative differences in the impaired speech production observed in aphasic stroke patients.

TLDR
Findings in four neuroimaging and neurological studies of music performance, perception, and comprehension suggest that the neural systems underlying music are distributed throughout the left and right cerebral and cerebellar hemispheres, with different aspects of music processed by distinct neural circuits.
