29 July 2006, What cognitive science can learn from music cognition., Vancouver, USA

Date: Saturday 29 July 2006
Location: Vancouver, USA

Symposium on Music and Cognition at CogSci 2006.

Like language, music is a uniquely human capacity that arguably played a central role in the origins of human cognition. The ways in which music can illuminate fundamental issues in cognition have been underexamined, or even dismissed as epiphenomenal. This symposium highlights cognition in music, especially as related to language, as enlarging our understanding of cognition as a hole, contributing conceptually and methodologically to cognitive science, and showing the advantages of taking music as a strong partner in studying human cognitive functioning in all its facets.

With contributions by:
Richard Ashley (Northwestern University, USA)
Erin Hannon (Harvard University, USA)
Henkjan Honing (University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands)
Edward Large (Florida Atlantic University, USA)
Caroline Palmer & Sean Hutchins (McGill University, Canada)
