This chapter is an introduction to Section 4 (Neuroscience). In the first chapter, the target article, resource-sharing framework for the comparative study of language and music is presented. Resource sharing is based on two principles: language and music involve domain-specific representations, and when similar cognitive processes are conducted on these representations, the brain shares neural resources between the two domains. This is followed by commentaries. The second target article focuses on modularity in language and music. That chapter suggests that an updated view of modularity can provide a useful framework within which to study cognitive systems (including language and music) and expands the modularity position to singing and speaking (hence, modularity in action), This is followed by commentaries.

Keywords:   neuroscience, language, music, resource haring, modularity, cognitive systems
