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. Nevertheless, the voice is more difficult to manipulate or control than other instruments, especially digital ones, and studies of music perception and cognition do not typically include vocal stimuli. 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…

SingWell Canada: Understanding group singing in older adults from a biopsychosocial perspective Abstract: Many older adults face formidable challenges to social wellbeing. Foremost among these is the social isolation and loneliness that may arise from a combination of factors inclusive of retirement from work, increased physical distance from family, and the death of loved ones. Another prominent challenge to social wellbeing concerns stigma, often involving self-stereotyping whereby an individual internalizes commonly held negative characterizations of aging or aging-associated diseases as part…

Dr. Razieh Alemi: How cochlear implant users control their voice pitch? Dr. Anastasia Sares: The pitch compensation response in individuals who stutter Dr. Razieh Alemi: How cochlear implant users control their voice pitch? Abstract:  Oral communication development relies on auditory feedback, enabling speakers to regulate voice parameters and preserve speech fluency. This sensorimotor integration is hindered by hearing loss. Cochlear implants (CIs) restore the sense of hearing, but whether CI users can re-establish a functional perception-production loop is unknown. Notably, some devices…

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…

Physiological, mechanical, and music-related features of pianists’ gestures Abstract: Piano performance involves different levels of motor abundancy: similar piano tones might be produced by an unlimited quantity of motion possibilities of all the body segments integrating the kinematic chain. Due to motor abundancy and the aesthetic and cultural factors underlying composers and performers’ artistic work, several approaches to piano performance currently coexist. According to a specific approach to piano performance developed at Université de Montréal, pianists might both reduce risks of…

Dr. Sébastien Paquette: Decoding Auditory Emotions  Dr. Bastien Intartaglia: The effect of language and musical experience on neural processing of sounds Dr. Sébastien Paquette: Decoding Auditory Emotions  Abstract: Many studies support the idea of common neural substrates for the perception of vocal and musical emotions. It is proposed that music, to make us perceive emotions, recruits the emotional circuits that evolved mainly for the processing of biologically relevant vocalizations (e.g., cries, screams). Although some studies have found great similarities between voice and…

Cortical tracking of high-level properties of music Abstract: Music, just as language, is a highly complex set of information, which contains structural layers ranging from low-level acoustical features (pitch, timber), to high-level syntactic or semantic information. The way these features are intertwined and encoded into the brain to ultimately convey musical meaning and emotion remains largely unknown. Electrophysiological studies have been focusing on ERP analysis, in which a specific feature is probed through numerous repetition. The time-locked neural response is then…

Morphosyntactic difficulties in acquired language disorders and their relationship with rhythm processing Abstract: Morphosyntactic difficulties are part of the clinical profile in many acquired language disorders related to vascular and neurodegenerative diseases. These difficulties not only concern the production of complex sentences but also affect language comprehension. However, speech difficulties and motor incapacities are often part of the clinical profile and may share common underlying origins. In this presentation, morphosyntactic difficulties in different populations will be reviewed with respect to their…
