HUDOBNÁ PSYCHOLÓGIA SÚČASNOSTI AKO EMPIRICKÁ DISCIPLÍNA
Contemporary music psychology as an empirical discipline
Languages of publication
Since the late 20th century, psychology of music has been pursued as a cognitive, empirical, data-driven discipline, building upon knowledge from musicology and psychology, as well as from the cognitive sciences and neurosciences. Currently, it covers various areas of research, including but not limited to music sensation, perception, cognition, and empirical investigations of the links between music and emotion; developmental music psychology, the issues of musical talent, the acquisition of musical skills, and the phenomenon of absolute pitch; music performance, composition and improvisation; neural correlates of listening to music and music-making; social aspects of music including its role in everyday life, in social, ethnic and broader cultural groups, as well as in educational and therapeutic settings. Empirical research in this specialised and interdisciplinary ﬁeld has been underrepresented within the domestic academic community. The task of building up a systematic research base will require a collective eﬀort of experts from related disciplines.
