BRAMS Day June 20, 2005

BRAMS, the International Laboratory for Brain, Music and Sound Research, was launched on June 20, 2005.

BRAMS (Brain, Music and Sound) is a research unit affiliated with the University of Montreal, McGill University and the Montreal Neurological Institute. BRAMS is devoted to the study of music cognition with a focus on neuroscience.  It is co-directed by CIRMMT members Isabelle Peretz (Professor, Dept. of Psychology, Université de Montréal) and Robert Zatorre (Professor, Montreal Neurological Institute, McGill University).

BRAMS exists to address the following questions: Why is the brain musical? How does the structure and function of the nervous system allow us to listen to, remember, play, and respond to music? How are these functions related to others such as understanding speech? How do these processes change during development, and how do they break down in disease?
