Musical Graphic

Musical activation studies have not dealt with the problem of unraveling the neural substrates of music writing for obvious reasons, given the complexities involved (e.g., complex movement sequences, visual-spatial organization, and translation from auditory imagery working memory to notation). Our only other source of information is the sequelae of focal brain damage, which again may result in dissociations between musical and verbal writing. Several musicians have become verbally agraphic but continued to write music. One, described by Signoret and colleagues, was an organist and composer who, following a left MCA stroke, became alexic and agraphic in Braille but continued to sight-read and compose music (in Braille). Thus, verbal and musical reading can be dissociated not only in their usual visual forms but also within the tactual modality.
