August Knoblauch


German neurologist best remembered for his research on the cognitive function regarding music; in 1888/90 he put forth a detailed diagrammatic model of music processing, and postulated the existence of nine disorders of music production and perception. He is credited with coining the term "amusia" — being defined as the inability to recognize musical tones or being unable to reproduce them.

He was a nephew of chemist August Kekulé. He died on 24 August 1919 in Frankfurt am Main, aged 56.
