How music may induce fluency (and dysfluency) in people who stutter
The question how fluency inducing conditions – such as music (e.g., singing) – may inhibit stuttering has remained largely unresolved. A complicating factor in this theoretical issue is that symptoms of stuttering and dysfluency have also been observed in musicians playing wind instruments, sometimes called « musical stuttering ».
To celebrate the scientific and cultural diversity of BRAMS, we are holding a “BRAMS Scientific Social”. The event is held on a Thursday once a month (except during the summer) and provides a platform to facilitate scientific and cultural exchange. BRAMS members get a chance to share new and exciting research with their fellow colleagues.
Nous sommes fiers de vous annoncer le lancement d’un nouveau cours en ligne gratuit: « Neurosciences: Parole, Musique ». Il s’agit d’une collaboration entre le BRAMS, l’Université de Montréal et l’Université Libre de Bruxelles.
Niveau du cours : Pour étudiants de premier cycle ou du deuxième cycle.
We are considering a special issue on the topic of music and aphasia planned for the specialty journal Aphasiology
Scientific papers relevant to the neuroscientific and cognitive study of music in aphasia are welcome. In particular, we are interested in original research reports, reviews, case studies, and clinical and theoretical papers. If you are interest in contributing, please send us a title and abstract by May 15.
One-day CRBLM/BRAMS workshop on music-based rehabilitation (from 9 am to 3 pm) & keynote lecture by Dr. Michael H. Thaut – CRBLM Distinguished Lecturer (from 3 pm to 5 pm).
When sound becomes noise – a research perspective
To perceive and produce sound is a magnificent capability that greatly facilitates and enriches human functioning. Sound, however, can quite easily turn into noise, or the other way around, a transition highly dependent on specific interaction between acoustical features, exposure context, and listener’s characteristics.

Musical Groove: Effects on pleasure, body-movement and the brain.
What is it about certain kinds of rhythms that make people want to dance, and why does it feel good? Groove is a musical quality associated with a pleasurable desire to move. While there is growing evidence for the effect of rhythm on motor networks and for emotionally stimulating music on the reward system, we have yet to understand what happens in the brain when music spontaneously stimulates both movement and emotion.
« Music and auditory-motor integration in the human brain. »
This talk will describe brain imaging and stimulation studies aimed at understand how auditory-motor representations for pitch and rhythm are encoded in the human brain.
As part of the Seminar course in cognitive psychology and Neuropsychology (PSY6407)
