    Many different disciplines are analyzing the impact of music.  How and why this ancient cultural asset molds, empowers and makes use of us can only become apparent in a synopsis and exchange involving scientific research.   This book includes contributions penned by leading scientists from around the world belonging to diverse music science disciplines, and covers psycho-physiological, neuro-developmental and cognitive aspects associated with the experience of music.  Additional essays provide insights into research conducted about how music is applied in therapy and medicine.
