Did anyone save the musical processing string?

I meant to save the series of postings on musial processing and the
brain, but the articles expired on my local system before I returned.  If
someone saved them, I would most appreciate a copy...

I am posting rather than replying directly in hopes of generating
some discussion about the topic of the neurophysiology of music perception.

I'd recommend that you look at

@BOOK{Clynes82a,
        AUTHOR = {Clynes, Manfred},
        TITLE = {Music, Mind and Brain: the Neuropsychology of Music},
        PUBLISHER = {Plenum Press},
        ADDRESS = {New York},
        YEAR = {1982}
}

and an interesting, but sometimes speculative, recent volume:


@BOOK{Wallin91a,
        AUTHOR = {Wallin, Nils Lennart},
        TITLE = {Biomusicology : neurophysiological, neuropsychological, and evo
lutionary perspectives on the origins and purposes of music},
        PUBLISHER = {Pendragon Press},
        ADDRESS = {Stuyvesant, NY},
        YEAR = {1991}
}

You should probably take a look at

@ARTICLE{Basar91a,
        AUTHOR = {Basar, E. and Basar--Eroglu, C. and Rahn, E. and Schurmann, M.
},
        TITLE = {Sensory and cognitive components of brain resonance responses:
an analysis of responsiveness in human and cat brain upon visual and auditory--s
timulation},
        JOURNAL = {Acta Oto--Laryngologica (Supplement)},
        VOLUME = {491},
        PAGES = {25--35},
        YEAR = {1991}
}

@ARTICLE{Bogen71a,
        AUTHOR = {Bogen, J. E. and Gordon, H. W.},
        TITLE = {Musical tests for functional lateralization with intracarotid a
mobarbital},
        JOURNAL = {Nature},
        VOLUME = {230},
        PAGES = {524--525},
        YEAR = {1971}
}

@INCOLLECTION{Borchgrevink82a,
        AUTHOR = {Borchgrevink, Hans M.},
        TITLE = {Prosody and musical rhythm are controlled by the speech hemisph
ere},
        BOOKTITLE = {Music, Mind and Brain},
        EDITOR = {Clynes, Manfred},
        PUBLISHER = {Plenum},
        ADDRESS = {New York},
        YEAR = {1982}
}

and although this doesn't directly apply to music perception, I think
that you should take a clue from:

@ARTICLE{Engel91a,
        AUTHOR = {Engel, A. K. and K\"{o}nig, P. and Singer, W.},
        TITLE = {Direct physiological evidence for scene segmentation by tempora

 States of America},
        VOLUME = {88},
        PAGES = {9136-9140},
        YEAR = {1991}
}

@ARTICLE{Gray89a,
        AUTHOR = {Gray, C. M. and K\"{o}nig, P. and Engel, A. K. and Singer, W.}
,
        TITLE = {Oscillatory responses in cat visual cortex exhibit inter--colum
nar synchronization which reflects global stimulus properties},
        JOURNAL = {Nature},
        VOLUME = {338},
        PAGES = {334--337},
        YEAR = {1989}
}

        AUTHOR = {Jones, S. J.},

binaural interaction of noise signals},
        JOURNAL = {Electroencephalography and Clinical Neurophysiology},
        VOLUME = {80},
        NUMBER = {5},
        PAGES = {399--405},
        YEAR = {1991}
}

@ARTICLE{Kaufman91a,

        JOURNAL = {Electroencephalography and Clinical Neurophysiology},
        VOLUME = {82},
        PAGES = {266--284},
        YEAR = {1991}
}

@INCOLLECTION{Llinas92a,
        AUTHOR = {Llin\'{a}s, R and Ribary, U.},
        TITLE =  {Chapter 7},
        BOOKTITLE = {Induced Rhythms in the Brain},

I can recall an lengthy article on music and the brain in New Scientist
about 2 years ago.

Covered things like appreciation versus information content.

Apparently, you like music with an information content that approaches
the bit rate you can handle.

i.e. you are either bored or perplexed outside your "optimum"
