Music is the art of thinking in sounds.1 With its power to evoke and communicate emotions it has long intrigued philosophers, but only recently has it claimed the attention of neuroscientists. Even today, there are some who see it as a mere epiphenomenon.2 Many others, however, are exploring the neurological foundations of music perception. In this review article we focus on mechanisms by which music is processed by the brain.
