I have taken "neuroscience" in this instance to be a catch-all term, as there are many different sub-fields covered, such as evolutionary musicology, cognitive musicology, biomusicology, anthropological and linguistic studies etc. Nevertheless, at the heart of all these is how music works in the mind.

To discuss particular papers or general ideas, the [URL="http://www.talkclassical.com/18394-music-neuroscience-discussion.html"]neuroscience discussion thread[/URL] is a good starting place.

The bulk of these are journal articles; scroll to the bottom for book recommendations.
