Music cognition meeting, handbook

Dear List,

Last week I posted to the list about the upcoming music cognition
meeting in August (abstract deadline Feb 1):


I forgot to mention that some of you may be interested in the newly
published Oxford Handbook of Music Psychology (edited by Hallam, Cross, and Thaut):


This book has a remarkable range, with 52 chapters divided into 11 sections:

- the origins and functions of music
- music perception
- responses to music
- music and the brain
- musical development
- learning musical skills
- musical performance
- composition and improvisation
- the role of music in our everyday lives
- music therapy
- conceptual frameworks, research methods, and future directions

Note that a 20% discount is available at this website: http://www.oup.co.uk/sale/amohmp09/

This book, plus Bill Thompson's recent textbook on music cognition
("Music, Thought, and Feeling"),  provide wonderful new resources
for teaching and research in music cognition.
