Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Music and Schema Theory Music is an important domain of application for schema theory. The perceptual structures for pitch and timbre have been mapped via schemata, with results that have contributed to a better understanding of music perception. Yet we still need to know how a schema comes into existence, or how it functions in a particular perception task. This book provides a foundation for the understanding of the emergance and functionality of schemata by means of computer-based simulations of tone center perception. It is about how memory structures self-organize and how they use contextual information to guide perception.

Format: Paperback
$117?? Really? And no pages available to preview? Obviously this is designed as a typical textbook extortion plan. I was looking for something precisely on this topic, but at this price, I'll just search the web for info instead.
