About this book

The relationship between music and the nervous system is now the subject of intense interest for scientists and people in the humanities, but this is by no means a new phenomenon. This volume sets out the history of the relationship between neurology and music, putting the advances of our era into context.

Reviews

“It provides an excellent introduction to some of the major ideas about music and the body. … Kennaway accomplishes much by asking his readers to engage with this material through the prism of music and the nerves, and this collection makes a valuable contribution to the growing body of historical studies focusing on music and neuroscience. The book will be of great interest to music scholars and historians of science, and will also appeal to neuroscientists and music cognition researchers.” (Carmel Raz, Social History of Medicine, Vol. 29 (3), August, 2016)
