Meeting Description:

Workshop: Shared Processing in Language and Music - What Neurocognition and Disorders Reveal (SPLM)

The workshop is embedded in the SMART Cognitive Sciences Conference that is held from March 25-28, 2015.


Traditionally, language and music have been regarded as two separate domains. Growing evidence, however, suggest that these two domains share at least certain processes. While there is more interesting research every day, part of what makes this field so exciting is that there are still two very different perspectives: Those who emphasize the differences between music and language and those who emphasize the similarities. Not only behavioral paradigms but more and more neurophysiological techniques are used to test hypotheses arising from those different perspectives and to investigate the neural underpinnings of possibly shared cognitive processes. At the same time, disorders that affect either faculty but supposedly spare the other, such as amusia and aphasia, are of great interest, too, as they can also lead to insights on what is shared by both domains and what is not.

This workshop aims at bringing together scientists from as diverse fields as linguistics, musicology, psychology, neurology and biology in order to foster an interdisciplinary dialogue that might create a better understanding of the shared processes in music and language.

Keynote Speakers:

Prof. Dr. Usha Goshwami, University of Cambridge, UK
Dr. Daniela Sammler, Max Planck Institute, Leipzig, Germany
Dr. Victoria Williamson, University of Sheffield, UK

Venue: University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

Call for Presentations:

We invite submissions for oral presentations on empirical or theoretical work. Abstracts should not be longer than one page (including references) and are to be submitted as pdfs to splm-fgw at uva.nl.

Any contributions focusing on the question of shared mechanisms between music and language are welcome, whether specific disorders are investigated, neurocognitive methods are employed or a combination of both. Theoretical approaches to this topic are also welcome.

Important Dates:

Abstract submission deadline: October 15, 2015     
Notification of acceptance: November 15, 2015      
Workshop dates: March 27-28, 2015
