Maya Mattar (Thesis) is a fourth-year student. She grew up learning piano from her father and played in several bands as a percussionist and trumpet player. Maya is curious about the ways in which neural and cognitive processes intersect with musical elements such as rhythm and form, and how these elements contribute to music’s therapeutic benefit in the management of neurologic disorders. Maya is eager to debut in the field of music cognition and develop her research skills as a member of the MAPLE Lab’s Auditory Alarms team.
