They summarized their results by stating six principles that describe hierarchies of harmonic stability which govern the perceived relationships between chords. Some of these principles were found to be dependent, and some to be independent of a tonal context.

12 For an fMRI study investigating the tracking of tonal space see Janata et al. (2002a). For an fMRI study using tonal modulations (changes in key) as stimuli see Koelsch et al. (2002a). For a study investigating electrophysiological correlates of the processing of tonal modulations see Koelsch et al. (2003b). 13 Fit-ratings for probe tones were shifted to a reference chord, and then averaged across each of the following conditions: Probe tone preceded by a major chord, by a minor chord, by a diminished chord, and by a dominant-seventh chord.

5 The circle of fifths (for major keys only). 2 The basic in-key functions in major The tones of a scale are also referred to as scale degrees. , in C major the tone c, is called the first degree, the second tone (in C major the tone d) is called second degree, etc. 6 for illustration). The triads built on the first, fourth, and fifth degree of a major scale are major chords, the triads built on the second, third, and sixth degree are minor chords. The triad on the seventh degree is a diminished chord.
