ΒRAIN LATERALITY DURING MELODY PROCESSING IN MUSICIANS AND NON-MUSICIANS

Εleftheria Papadopoulou & Mary H. Kosmidis
We examined brain laterality during melody processing and its relationship to processing strategies (analytic vs. holistic) in musicians and non-musicians. Participants performed a multiple-choice task with melodies presented binaurally, and indicated the strategy used to identify them. Musicians demonstrated left hemisphere dominance during melody recognition, but non-musicians, right hemisphere dominance. This group difference may reflect enhanced left hemisphere involvement in the musicians. We found no association between laterality and self-reported strategy, although analytical processing was...
