The Psychology of Music
The focus of this course is on the sensorimotor interactions involved in the perception and production of music. Through this lens we also consider the physics of music, its evolutionary origins, and its effects on emotion, development and creativity. An important component is the discussion of research evidence with regard to the benefits of music, including its purported capacity to support cognitive function, regulate stress, promote social cohesion, facilitate learning, and support rehabilitation.
