A newly formed research consortium linking the BRAMS laboratory and CIRMMT aims to understand the neural substrates of human auditory cognition and the musical mind. The infrastructure will be installed at four sites on the campuses of the Université de Montréal and McGill University for this consortium that will make Montreal the world’s premiere site for research on the cognitive neuroscience of music and related functions.
