Abstract

The article reports on the roles that learning, attention and different types of memory, including short term memory, working memory and declarative memory, play in the study of voice and singing. A discussion of research in the areas of memory and neuroscience which have led to an increased understanding of the functions of the human brain is presented. The importance of attention in the learning process which is featured in the study of voice is discussed. The role that attentional aides and sleep play in the human learning process and in human memory is examined.
