Musical Melody and Speech Intonation: Singing a Different Tune?
AbstractThe processing of pitch information differs significantly for speech and music; specifically, there are two pitch-related processing systems, one for more coarse-grained, approximate analysis and one for more fine-grained accurate representation, and that the latter is unique to music. More broadly, this dissociation offers clues about the interface between sensory and motor systems, and highlights the idea that multiple processing streams are a ubiquitous feature of neuro-cognitive architectures.
