Data and Questions

The goals of this project include

  1. Evaluate and purchase a wearable EEG
  2. Set up the instrumentation for data capture
  3. Set up the experimentation/data-capture plan
  4. Recruit Subjects
  5. Perform Data Capture
  6. Analyze Results
  7. Propose pathways to take this to the market by embedding it as an app

Four principles of bio-musicology, W. Tecumseh Fitch 2015
This paper is a prospectus for biomusical research. Main points:
i) musical is complex (yes!)
ii) questions must be asked from a Tinbergean perspective (i.e. mechanism, ontogeny, phylogeny and function),
iii) comparative between animals (not relevant for us), and
iiii) "ecologically motivated," i.e. not just Western skilled musicians.

Neurological implications and neuropsychological considerations on folk music and dance, Sironi V.A., Riva M.A., 2015
Calls for "Interdisciplinary research on these subjects (ethnomusicology and cultural anthropology, clinical neurology and dynamic psychology, neuroradiology and neurophysiology, and socioneurology and neuromusicology)"
