The Conformal Motive in Birdsong, Music, and Language: An Introduction

An Introduction
Human song and music are part of what may be called a ritual stratum of human culture. As such, they involve special behaviors and neural mechanisms with an uneven but interesting distribution in nature. This may be turned to account not only for shedding light on the biological background of human song and music, but also for elucidating the nature of the cultural traditions within which these arts are practiced and elaborated. The purpose of this chapter is accordingly threefold: (1) to highlight the uniqueness of human culture compared to that of other primates by defining and contrasting two very different types of traditions that coexist within it: those of instrumental culture and those of ritual culture; (2) to outline the crucial role of the mechanism of vocal learning as an enabling device for ritual culture, specifically, by way of the well-studied behavioral biology of birdsong; and (3) to introduce the conformal motive as a so-far neglected, but essential, aspect of the neural mechanisms required for vocal learning. Taken together, these considerations will then be used to sketch some of the roles this postulated conformal motive appears to play in human culture, stratified into instrumental, ritual, and language traditions. Some of the implications of this perspective for our understanding of a number of issues related to the human facility for imitation, expressive mimesis, and deliberate teaching are also briefly touched upon.

One approach to comparing the neural bases of language and music is through the use of song, which is a unique and ecological combination of these two cognitive domains. In song, language and music are merged into one acoustic signal with two salient dimensions. By manipulating either the linguistic or musical dimensions (or both) of song and studying their relationships, it is possible to gain important information about the neural networks underlying language and music cognition. We will present a brief review followed by recent behavioral, electrophysiological, and neuroimaging studies concerned with the functional and structural relationships of music and language. These results, together with the previous studies in the field, help understanding whether the different levels of music and language processing are independent or interactive.

MuSICA
Our goal is to establish a comprehensive data base of scientific research (references and abstracts) on music as related to behavior, the brain and allied fields, in order to foster interdisciplinary knowledge. Topics included: auditory system, human and animal behavior, creativity, human brain / neuropsychology of music, effects of music on behavior and physiology, music education / medicine / performance / and therapy, neurobiology, perception and psychophysics.

MUSIC THERAPY

 

 

Treating Stress, Speech Disorders With Music12/16/11
More and more hospitals and clinics now offer music therapy as a supplementary treatment for everything from anxiety to Alzheimer's, but its efficacy varies for different conditions. Neurologist Oliver Sacks and several music therapists discuss the science and practice of music therapy.


Musicians' Brains Wired Differently
http://dailynews.yahoo.com/h/ap/20011114/en/musician_s_brains_1.html
By SETH HETTENA, 11/14 /01

The brain waves of professional musicians respond to music in a way that suggests they have an intuitive sense of the notes that amateurs lack, researchers said Wednesday. Zatorre, who has studied the brain's response to music for two decades, said it was the first time anyone had studied music and its relationship to motor control and imagery.


Brain Changes Help Deaf People Feel, Sense Music

DR. GORDON SHAW OPENS M.I.N.D. INSTITUTE

Gordon Shaw (949) 475-0492, ext. 30
On Thursday, March 2nd Dr. Gordon Shaw officially opened the new offices of the Music Intelligence Neural Development (M.I.N.D.) Institute in Irvine. The new headquarters will house the research team that developed the Spatial-Temporal Animation Reasoning (STAR) software that has been so successful, combined with music lessons, in teaching kids proportional math.
In a press release dated February 24, 2000, Dr. Shaw explained that a curriculum combining piano lessons, educational math software and fun math problems can help second graders achieve scores on certain tests comparable to fourth graders, according to studies by the Music Intelligence Neural Development (MIND) Institute.
The curriculum uses piano instruction to enhance the brain's ability to learn, then allows children to apply that mental acuity toward math problems. In the studies, second-graders from 95th street Preparatory School in inner-city Los Angeles were compared with fourth and fifth graders from an Orange County, CA school with a higher socioeconomic level. The students took the advanced math concepts exams, which tested math problem-solving ability, in 1999.
For 45 minutes two days a week, students got piano instruction from a music teacher at school. Then they used computers to play an educational game developed by the study's lead author and neuroscientist, Matthew Peterson. They play the game, called STAR for 45 minutes on another two days a week. And, one day a week, their classroom teacher leads a math integration lesson, in which students do brain-stretching problems aloud.
Second graders who received piano training, used the software and practiced math puzzles and exercises every week attained scores comparable to fourth graders. Half of these second graders scored in the top 20th percentile of the nationwide Standford 9 test in math, and these students achieved scores on the advanced math concepts exams comparable to the Orange County fifth graders. www.MINDInst.org.

Music therapy programs

 

 

Music therapy programs are popping up in hospitals and treatment centers around the country. But what do we actually know about the health benefits of music & or how music is processed by our brains? In this hour of Science Friday, Ira talks with patients, doctors, and scientists about the research and practice of music therapy.
