Tendere l'orecchio. L'attenzione nel processo uditivo: neuroscienze e antropologia in dialogo


Psychological and neuroscientific inquiry pointed out the value of attention for auditory perception. Recent studies have identified that the problem is not one of finding a location for a given task, but of identifying how and what one wants to do with a given stimulus. This radicalises the problem of attention in perception. In this paper I try bring experimental research into dialogue with social role of emotions and attention in sonorous and musical field from the point of view of anthropology and ethnomusicology.
