Welcome to the MCCL!


The goal of our lab is to explore the processes of music learning, both formal and informal, and how they are shaped by culture, biology, and experience. Through the methods of cognitive psychology and cognitive neuroscience, we hope to better define the role of culture and context in shaping how people hear and understand the music of their time and place. We also seek to clarify how music cognition and learning shape and are shaped by the structures and functions of the brain.
