Blitz des étudiants du BRAMS

Publié par: le 30 novembre 2018 | Pas de commentaire

Vous êtes cordialement invités au Blitz des étudiants du BRAMS!

Le BRAMS a maintenant ré-ouvert ses portes et repris ses activités de recherche et d’enseignement. Cependant, nous n’avons pas eu l’occasion d’accueillir officiellement tous les nouveaux étudiants du BRAMS de cette année (et de la dernière année, puisque le BRAMS a temporairement fermé ses portes au cours de la dernière année.

Pour remédier à cette situation, nous vous invitons à un 4 @ 7 le vendredi 30 novembre à 16 :00 dans le local A-135 du Pavillon Marie-Victorin de l’UdeM. En cette occasion, les nouveaux étudiants auront de 3 à 10 minutes (chacun ou en équipe de recherche) pour se présenter. Ce sera donc l’occasion idéale de rencontrer les nouveaux étudiants, de retrouver les anciens étudiants et de connaître les recherches qui ont récemment débutées ou qui débuteront prochainement au BRAMS.

Si vous êtes un nouvel étudiant au BRAMS et que vous n’avez pas reçu de courriel de la part de Megha ou de Éva concernant la préparation de cet événement, SVP écrivez-nous aux adresses suivantes : megha.sharda@umontreal.ca ou eva.nadon@umontreal.ca

Il est possible que de nouveaux résidents ne soient pas sur la liste de distribution.  Si c’est le cas, SVP veuillez en informer Johanne David afin d’ajouter le(s) nom(s) (johanne.david.1@umontreal.ca).

How baby gets the groove: Modeling rhythm learning, perceptual narrowing, and enculturation

Ontogeny is a complex, emergent process that arises from interactions between the developing organism and the structures present in the rearing environment. In the field of infant development, one of the most well known consequences of organism-environment interactions is the adaption and re-organization of perception-action systems to structural regularities in the environment, a phenomenon called “perceptual narrowing” or “perceptual fine tuning.”

Title: A Global Survey of Rhythm Representations

Abstract:  Over the past few years, cross-cultural comparative work has made various claims about the universality of aspects of music, aesthetic preferences, and emotion (Fritz 2009, Brown & Jordania 2013, Savage et al. 2015). However, recent work suggests that features that were previously regarded as universal —such as consonance / dissonance, or rhythm perception— may in fact be at least partially determined by culture (McDermott et al. 2016; Jacoby & McDermott 2017).

Comment l’apprentissage de la musique agit-il sur notre cerveau ? Quels effets a-t-il sur la curiosité, l’attention et la mémorisation ? Quel impact sur la lecture ou le raisonnement mathématique ? Faut-il, pour apprendre et faire des progrès, qu’un enfant ait l’oreille musicale ? Et s’il chante faux ? Que penser par ailleurs des adultes qui décident de s’y mettre sur le tard ? Y a-t-il un âge pour apprendre la musique ?

On December 15th, 2017, the main site of BRAMS located at 1430 Mont-Royal, closed due to the sale of the building by the university. It will be relocated to another building, across the street in Pavilion Marie-Victorin, and will re-open in June 2018. We look forward to welcoming you there to continue the excellent research that has characterized BRAMS over the last ten years.

Beat Perception and Meter Induction in Vision and Spatial Audition

His ongoing thesis is entitled “Neural and Evolutionary Correlates of Rhythm Processing through Beat and Meter.”The neural correlates of timing mechanisms are observed through electroencephalographic recordings and frequency analyses. The main goal is to better understand how our brain processes beat and meter across modalities, and attest the role of attention and the impact of formal music training on rhythmic perception. The evolutionary bases of these timing mechanisms are observed through behavioral studies with rats. We try to disentangle which rhythmic components are human-specific (and maybe related to language) and which are shared with other animals. Future studies will also look at the evolution of the tonal-harmonic structure of music.

Alexandre Celma Miralles is a PhD candidate in Biomedicine in the Center for Brain and Cognition at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra (Barcelona, Spain). He is currently working on music cognition in the “Language & Comparative Cognition Group” under the supervision of J. M. Toro. After a Music Professional degree on violin (2010) and a BA in Catalan Philology (2012), he pursued a MA in Cognitive Science and Language (2014) and a MSc in Brain and Cognition (2015), which led him into the research of “syntactic” structures in the framework of biolinguistics and biomusicology. He is also an associate member of the “Grammar & Cognition Lab”, directed by W. Hinzen & J. Rosselló at the Universitat de Barcelona.

How music may induce fluency (and dysfluency) in people who stutter

Abstract

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 ».
