McMaster Music & the Mind (MIMM) Research View Publications

Scientists, researchers, and musicians at MIMM study questions about the physical structure, evolution, neural processing, performance, and perception of music, dance and media arts. Specific questions concern how the auditory and motor systems interact to produce music, how performers synchronize with each other, how people encode and recognize music, and how groups in society are defined by the music they play.
