Study on Music & Infants

Posted by: on Jan 30, 2012 | No Comments

Why do young children like music? Which music do they prefer? We are pursuing such questions at BRAMS and are currently seeking infants 4 to 12 months of age to participate in an ongoing study of early sound preferences.

Participation involves a single visit to BRAMS for a very pleasant and very brief “test” session. Infants sit on their parent’s lap throughout the 5-minute session. Our procedure allows infants to choose what they listen to and for how long they listen. Infant and parent have fun while we gain important information about the development of listening preferences. If you would like to have more information about participating in our studies, please  contact us via email.

This study is being conducted under the supervision of Professor Isabelle Peretz, co-director of BRAMS, and Professor Sandra Trehub, guest professor at BRAMS and director of the Auditory Perception Lab at the University of Toronto Mississauga.

BRAMS is located on Boulevard Mont Royal in Outremont, with parking available for your convenience.

This study is undertaken under the supervision of Professor Isabelle Peretz, PhD, co-director of BRAMS, and Professor Sandra Trehub, PhD, invited professor at BRAMS and director of the Infant and Child Studies Centre.
