For the past decade, Fiske (music, U. of Western Ontario) has been using neural network models to test his theory that musical thinking can be described as a hierarchy of progressively more intricate pattern-comparison activity, and that the resulting musical realizations are limited to only three cognitive category types. He describes the development of his theory, several related experimental studies, and the neural network models he uses to test the theory. Neural network methodology can seem daunting, he admits, so he has tried to keep technical descriptions to a minimum in order to highlight his main goal: to describe and test a set of principles that appear to represent the foundation of musical understanding.
