To the AUDITORY list, Music as a Brain and Behavioural System Special Issue of Australian Journal of Psychology December 1999 Volume 51, Number 3 We are pleased to announce publication of a special issue of the 'Australian Journal of Psychology' with the theme Music as a Brain and Behavioural System. The special issue contains eight peer-reviewed articles from research groups in Australia, Canada, Europe and the United States. The table of contents is shown below. The aim of the special issue is to bring together some of the current experimental work being conducted in Australia and internationally, and to draw attention of the experimental psychology readership in Australia to the vital and expanding area of the psychology of music. The issue includes articles on neuropsychology and neurophysiology of music, measuring emotional response to music, attention and timing factors, and performance and perceptual-motor skills.
