Enhancing executive functions through information-based neuromodulation Abstract: Executive functions, such as working memory, are essential cognitives processes for our everyday life activities. When such functions are disrupted due to age-related or pathology-related cognitive decline, life becomes increasingly difficult and isolating. For those reasons, a large amount of studies have used non-invasive brain stimulation (NIBS) to enhance those functions in healthy individuals and neurological population. However, the outcomes have been considerably variable and the neurophysiological mechanisms by which these methods work, or…

The influence of vocal timbre on learning and memory for melodies Abstract:  The voice is a dynamic, biologically relevant signal. It is also the “original” instrument.

The aim of this talk is to explore the effects of vocal timbre on music perception and cognition, with a focus on learning and memory for…

Sound-focused aural training with Inner Ear  Abstract: Inner Ear is a SSHRC-funded multi-university research-creation project for developing an accessible, adaptive ear training tool geared toward musicians and audio engineers working in the various sound fields. The design of this software builds on a decade-long, ongoing, action research study with music students who major in electroacoustic studies. The objective of the research has been to understand the student's aural skill acquisition process and subsequently develop comprehensive tools to facilitate rapid refinement of…

Polyphony – Systematics and Ontogenesis Abstract:  To produce a melody is one thing; to couple it with a second one is yet another; but to create unity between several different parts at the same time is a major problem that has called for solutions in different historical epochs and in various cultural contexts. Polyphony - the simultaneous unfolding of several voices - is precisely the art of making different melodic sequences coexist as a whole, which transcends each one of them…
