Prosody, musical rhythm, tone pitch and response initiation during amytal hemisphere anaesthesia
During the last century a number of clinical reports have indicated that left hemisphere lesions produce speech/language deficit, whereas damage to the right hemisphere leads to impaired musical function (reviewed by Gordon and Bogen, 1974). Consistent with these findings Milner (1962) reported that the Seashore timbre and tonal memory subtests were impaired after right temporal lobectomy, and not by left temporal lobectomy.
