Music performance is both a natural human activity, present in all societies, and one of the most complex and demanding cognitive challenges that the human mind can undertake. Unlike most other sensory–motor activities, music performance requires precise timing of several hierarchically organized actions, as well as precise control over pitch interval production, implemented through diverse effectors according to the instrument involved. We review the cognitive neuroscience literature of both… Expand

Neuroscience of the auditory-motor system: How does sound interact with movement?
TLDR
Two theories are addressed that attempt to explain the convergence of the auditory system and the motor system according to new neuroanatomical, neurophysiological and artificial neural network findings and reflect on the different approaches to a complex problem in cognitive neuroscience. Expand

TLDR
This paper focuses on similarities in music and language cognition research, showing that music cognition research provides insight into the understanding of not only music processing but also language processing and the processing of other structured stimuli. Expand
A conceptual review on action-perception coupling in the musicians’ brain: what is it good for?
TLDR
Training-based coupling of perception and action might scaffold the human ability to represent complex (structured) actions and to entrain multiple agents—via reciprocal prediction and adaptation—in the pursuit of shared goals. Expand
The neuroscience of music; a review and summary.
TLDR
The role of mirror neuron systems of the brain appears to be of great importance and parallels exist in the development and functioning of language and music. Expand
Sensory feedback in music performer–instrument interactions
Musical performance involves the production of highly accurate sequences of movements in space and time. During a performance, real-time auditory, visual, somatosensory (tactile and kinematic), andExpand

Task-Irrelevant Auditory Feedback Facilitates Motor Performance in Musicians
TLDR
Behaviorally, it is found that auditory feedback reinforced SRTT performance of the right hand (referring to absolute response speed) while learning capabilities remained unchanged, highlighting a potential important role for task-irrelevant auditory feedback in motor performance in musicians. Expand
Music perception and cognition: development, neural basis, and rehabilitative use of music.
TLDR
Current evidence suggests that music-based rehabilitation can be effective in many developmental, psychiatric, and neurological disorders, such as autism, depression, schizophrenia, and stroke, as well as in many chronic somatic illnesses that cause pain and anxiety. Expand
Effector-independent brain network for auditory-motor integration: fMRI evidence from singing and cello playing
TLDR
Experts found that cellists were able to sing/play target tones, and compensate for and ignore introduced feedback perturbations equally well, supporting the hypothesis that pitch regulation during cello playing relies on structures within the singing network and suggests that differences arise primarily at the level of forward motor control. Expand
Musical Training Effect on Reading Musical Notation: Evidence from Event-Related Potentials
TLDR
It was observed that in the early stage of note reading, the musician/non-musician differences emerged in the latency range of the N1 and N2, suggesting that musicians receive auditory meanings from visual music notations, so they did not find it necessary to spend more resources on executing spatial attention during pitch processing.
