Also in this issue is an article by myself and others that touch on various aspects of musicality in human behaviour. Also see: Trevarthen, C. & Malloch, S. (2000). The Dance of Wellbeing: Defining the Musical Therapeutic Effect. The Nordic Journal of Music Therapy, 9 (2), 3-17. 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.
