Our research aims to understand how music, cognition, and the brain interact to influence human learning and information processing. We ask whether music experience generates cross-domain neural plasticity and leads to better language outcomes, memory, attention, and executive function. Findings will shed light on one fundamental question of cognitive science: How (music) experience shapes the brain and mind.

ABOUT THE LAB
As music is universal, accessible, safe, and low-cost, our ultimate goal is to impact clinical practices and education policy by using music as a preventative and interventional tool to benefit a variety of populations.
