Lab presentations cover three main project areas, including:

  • From score to stage: Exploring the relationship between music structure and emotional response (Martinez, Chuen, & Schutz).  This presentation is part of a symposium exploring empirical musicological approaches to the study of emotional communication in music, which will include presentations by David Huron, Lisa Margulis, Dan Shanahan and Leigh VanHandel.
  • A quantitative analysis of auditory stimuli: New results and insights (Gillard, & Schutz).  This talk summarizes new insights from the lab’s ongoing Survey of Sounds project exploring the types of sounds used in auditory research.  The talk will cover findings from three journals: Music Perception; Attention, Perception, & Psychophysics; and Hearing Research.
  • Tapping through longer periods of silence improves perceived timing (Manning, & Schutz) discusses new findings regarding the role of metric structure in sensorimotor interactions.  This presentation extends Fiona’s research on the role of body movement in rhythm perception.
