We are broadly concerned with how the brain conceptualizes complicated event sequences typical of music and speech and the conditions under which this ability breaks down. Various lines of research are currently underway to achieve this goal. Lab facilities are designed to accommodate a number of paradigms, including vocal production, keyboard production, motion capture, and perceptual tasks.


The lab welcomes students at both the graduate and undergraduate level who are interested in sequence production and auditory perception. Students in psychology, music, and other related disciplines are welcome to apply as research assistants. Because most of our studies involve music-related paradigms, a music background is highly beneficial for working in the lab. For more information, please visit our contact page.
