Music Perception and Cognition Lab, McGill University

This lab employs the techniques of digital signal processing, mechanics, psychophysics, cognitive psychology, psychophysiology, and cognitive neuroscience to understand what it calls ‘psychomechanics’: “the relations between the properties of mechanical objects and the perception of the events they produce.” The lab is particularly focused on questions about timbre, multimodal scene analysis, the temporal nature of music cognition and its relation to musical sound and structure.

The site includes links to music library and resources, online resources, psychology web sites, and collaborating institutions.
