Abstract: The argument of whether language and music have the same process mechanism had lasted for a long time. Making a brief review for aphasia and amusia, combing with the research of ERP and functional neuroimaging for language and music’s contrast process and synchronous process, it is found that, to a large extent, both of them exist coincidence of process mechanism; it means that they have ‘the common neural process resource’. Making research for more domains of music’s process is helpful to the advance of language’s process research. It also has profound and lasting applied prospect if they are combined with together

Key words: aphasia and amusia, ERP, neuroimaging, contrast process, synchronous process
