Functional Neuroimaging of Semantic and Episodic Musical Memory

TLDR
A study to determine the neural substrates underlying the semantic and episodic components of music using familiar and nonfamiliar melodic tunes found two distinct patterns of activations; these findings are discussed in light of the available neuropsychological data obtained in brain‐damaged subjects and functional neuroimaging studies.

Neural Correlates Underlying Musical Semantic Memory
TLDR
The musical lexicon (and most widely musical semantic memory) appears to be sustained by a temporo‐prefrontal cerebral network involving right and left cerebral regions.
Music Lexical Networks
TLDR
The neuroimaging data suggest that these auditory memories are tightly coupled with action (singing), by showing left activation in the planum temporale, in the supplementary motor area (SMA), and in the inferior frontal gyrus, and that the STS is the critical region involved in musical memories.

Musical memory and its relation to emotions and the limbic system
The retrieval of music rated as emotional or non emotional (arousal and valence) from long-term memory was investigated behaviourally in three experiments by recognition tasks. A neuroimaging
The Influence of Music on Prefrontal Cortex during Episodic Encoding and Retrieval of Verbal Information: A Multichannel fNIRS Study
Music can be thought of as a complex stimulus able to enrich the encoding of an event thus boosting its subsequent retrieval. However, several findings suggest that music can also interfere with
Neuronal Correlates of Perception, Imagery, and Memory for Familiar Tunes
TLDR
The results present new evidence for the cortical network underlying goal-directed auditory imagery, with a prominent role of the right pFC both for the subjective impression of imagery vividness and for on-line mental monitoring of imagery-related activity in auditory areas.
Brain Networks That Track Musical Structure
  • P. Janata

TLDR
Very early evidence is emerging from the literature for the hypothesis that the rostral medial prefrontal cortex is a node that is important for binding music with memories within a broader music‐responsive network.

The structural components of music perception. A functional anatomical study.
TLDR
Activations preferentially in the left hemisphere for familiarity, pitch tasks and rhythm, and in the right hemisphere for the timbre task are found, suggesting a role for this cerebral region in the processing of sequential sounds.
Episodic retrieval activates the precuneus irrespective of the imagery content of word pair associates. A PET study.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the precuneus shows consistent activation during episodic memory retrieval and occurred in visual and auditory presentation modalities and for both highly imaginable and abstract words.

Neural mechanisms underlying melodic perception and memory for pitch
TLDR
It is concluded that specialized neural systems in the right superior temporal cortex participate in perceptual analysis of melodies; pitch comparisons are effected via a neural network that includes right prefrontal cortex, but active retention of pitch involves the interaction of right temporal and frontal cortices.
Frontal lobes and human memory: insights from functional neuroimaging.
TLDR
It is predicted that the resolution of questions concerning the functional neuroanatomical subdivisions of the frontal cortex will ultimately depend on a fuller cognitive psychological fractionation of memory control processes, an enterprise that will be guided and tested by experimentation.
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.
Neural Systems Shared by Visual Imagery and Visual Perception: A Positron Emission Tomography Study
TLDR
Fourteen areas were activated in common by both tasks, only 1 of which may not be involved in visual processing (the precentral gyrus) and in addition, 2 were activation in perception but not imagery, and 5 wereactivated in imagery but not perception.
Functional anatomy of a common semantic system for words and pictures
TLDR
This study studied the functional anatomy of semantic processing by using positron-emission tomography to contrast activity during two semantic tasks (probing knowledge of associations between concepts, and knowledge of the visual attributes of these concepts), performed either with words or with pictures.
The organization of memory for familiar songs
The organizing principles in memory for familiar songs were investigated in two experiments. The hypothesis was that we do not store and remember each song in isolation. Rather, there exists a rich

TLDR
It is reported that certain regions in the brain may show some form of adaptation to extraordinary challenges and requirements of performance, and the neural correlates of one unique musical ability, absolute pitch, are shown.
