Abstract

The configural processing which occurs during melody perception and recognition was discussed. Configural processing was related to the processing of an abstract representation of a melody as relying on a specific arrangement of its constituent elements. The melodies which consisted of the degraded pitches and tested pitch perception of tones and their overall melody recognition were also presented.
