Wallaschek (1891b) used Knoblauch’s term “amusia,” and was the only scholar with a background in psychology and musicology to contribute to the discussion among neurologists about classifications of different amusia syndromes. This unique perspective among psychologists and musicologists led to unique speculation about mental representation for music. Case studies suggested that a particular type of amusia could impair one music ability yet leave other abilities intact, and these studies suggested different ways of processing music.

Researchers in all three disciplines investigated how music is processed by the brain. Psychologists and comparative musicologists, such as Carl Stumpf, thought in terms of multiple levels of sensory processing and mental representation.
