Permeating across societies and cultures, music is a companion to millions across the globe. Despite being an abstract art form, music affects all of us deeply, encouraging us in periods of difficulty, comforting us in moments of sadness and celebrating with us in times of joy. In recent years, neuroscientists have recognized that listening to and producing music involves a tantalizing mix of practically every human cognitive function. Thus, music has emerged as an invaluable tool to study varying aspects of the human brain such as auditory and motor perception and learning, attention, memory, and emotion. In this paper, we will discuss the different attributes of music and the neural structures associated with them. We will also highlight some recent work in our laboratory at the National Brain Research Centre in India on emotions associated with Hindustani ra¯ga music
