Scientists associated with music cognition[edit]

Is it ok to add another line for notable music researchers? --Λeternus (talk) 08:22, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

Support. Makes sense to me. geordie (talk) 16:41, 8 April 2014 (UTC)


How do we feel about renaming this box to "Music psychology"? I feel like the more general term would better summarize the areas within it (in line with cognition and neuroscience traditionally falling in the realm of psychology). Music Cognition and Biomusicology would be listed as areas. Any thoughts? geordie (talk) 16:46, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

I agree. Nice job on music psychology, btw. Articles about music psychology and cognition have all been somewhat lost and not linked with each other, so I tried to do some cross-linking over time. (Music, for example, didn't contain a single word about music philosophy or psychology until very recently.) I also want to notify you that the article about music cognition is in a very bad state (there's no much info about the "cognitive" part in it really), and it could do with some improving. --Λeternus (talk) 08:47, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. It's definitely a work in progress. Got sick of seeing my field represented so poorly. I've got a history section almost ready, then I'll continue to merge articles and get the literature up to date. I'll crack on with the renaming here so we have a central hub to work around. People can revert if they oppose. I requested "Music" be added to the Psychology sidebar as well. Thanks for your work so far. Any more help you can give would be much appreciated. Good to see a fellow DT fan btw! Hasn't been the same without Portnoy :) And thanks for the cookies. geordie (talk) 22:03, 11 April 2014 (UTC)

Aural Illusions[edit]

Can't decide what to do with the various Category:Auditory illusions. Some seem more "musical" than others, though in theory any could be involved in musical composition and perception. On the other hand they aren't exclusive to music or music research, affecting general hearing, speech, etc. Is it worth it having a separate category for them to be listed? Or do we leave them out entirely and let the Auditory illusion listing in the template lead to them? geordie (talk) 23:08, 25 April 2014 (UTC)
