In concluding the 14th year of the Abstracts review, this issue's column will be devoted exclusively to the topic of music and speech/language neurobiology--papers discussing their similarities and differences, the effects each one has on the other, and how musical training affects language in persons of all ages. Many of these articles appeared in successive online issues of Frontiers in Psychology, 2011. An additional bibliographic review on this topic appeared in MPPA in 2011.
