...recommended without restrictions...highly enjoyable and valuable for researchers and students interested in the neurobiology of musical performance.
[It] displays a well-balanced account of contemporary neuroscience research into music performance and the role of disordered motor control. The book also shows that new scientific approaches to the study of music and the brain are just at a stage to gain first insights into the processing of elementary aspects of music.

Notă biografică

After graduating in Medicine and Music Eckart Altenmüller held a postdoctoral position in the department of Clinical Neurophysiology in Freiburg where he carried out research into brain activation during auditory processing of music and learning of fine motor skills. He received his clinical training in Neurology at the Department of Neurology at the University of Tübingen (Head of the Department Prof. Dr. J. Dichgans). Since 1994 he is a chair and directorof the Institute of Music Physiology and Musicians' Medicine. He continues research into movement disorders in musicians and into motor and sensory learning in musicians. In his outpatient clinic he sees 500 musicians a year, mostly suffering from movement disorders such as focal dystonia, focal tremor orfrom chronic pain syndromes. Currently 270 patients suffering from musicians' cramp are under his supervision. During the last ten years he received 20 grants from the German Research Society (DFG).
