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.

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.
