Aiui there have been lots of brain scan experiments demonstrating that understanding spoken natural language uses different synaptic circuits to process different syntax elements. I hope to get some time to find more useful answers to your question this weekend and post back in this thread.

"These combined results suggest that [an area of the brain], known to be crucial for syntax processing in [natural] language, plays also a functional role in the processing of musical syntax. Hence, the present findings are consistent with the notion that Broca's area supports the processing of syntax in a rather domain-general way." (from http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20570253)
