Article English OPEN
Jiang, Cunmei ; Liu, Fang ; Wong, Patrick C. M. (2017)

Emotional communication in music depends on multiple attributes including psychoacoustic features and tonal system information, the latter of which is unique to music. The present study investigated whether congenital amusia, a lifelong disorder of musical processing, i... View more
