FUNCTIONAL neuroimaging broadly refers to methods used to visualize neural activity in the brain in relation to a specific experimental variable (e.g., an emotion). It was only about ten years ago that neuroscientists began to use functional neuroimaging to investigate the neural substrates of emotion with music. The first part of this chapter provides a review of functional neuroimaging studies of emotion and music. It then describes the functional significance of a number of brain structures crucially involved in emotional processing. A section is devoted to musical emotions, emphasizing (1) that music is capable of evoking ‘real’ and ‘basic’ emotions; (2) that music can evoke even more than just those basic emotions; and (3) that if an emotion can never be evoked by music, then it is not an emotion at all.

Keywords:   emotion, music, musical emotion, neuroimaging, emotional processing
