Getting Started -- Music Research

This first-year seminar details the relationship between the music and the mind.  Topics include the physics of musical sound, music perception and cognition, music and emotion, the social psychology of music, and the relationship between music use/preference and personality.

Remember that these are only some of the sources that may be useful to you.  Please contact me for help with any of your research, Sarah Penniman, x1428 or e-mail AskUs.
