If we're talking 'musicality' rather than simply stimulus perception, I
suggest as a starter the article by Colwyn Trevarthen: Musicality and the
Intrinsic Motive Pulse, Musicae Scientiae (1999/2000) pp.155-215. Also in
this issue is an article by myself and others that touch on various aspects
of musicality in human behaviour.
Trevarthen, C. & Malloch, S. (2000). The Dance of Wellbeing: Defining the
Musical Therapeutic Effect. The Nordic Journal of Music Therapy, 9 (2),
and the book Origins of Music, edited by Wallin, Merker and Brown.
The work of the musicologist John Blacking could also be considered when
looking at the role of musicality in society - which of course informs the
issue of musicality and the brain.
Hope this is helpful,
