June 27, Neuromusic III, Montreal

At Neuromusic III in Montreal the following persons had a working lunch on Friday, June 27: Isabelle Peretz, Frank Russo, Laurel Trainor, Lauren Stewart, Stephen Brown, Simone Dalla Bella, Sandra Trehub, Jean Zarate, and Judy Platinga. Stephen Mithen, author of the Singing Neanderthal and recently appointed Dean of Science at Reading University gave an impressive address. The group agreed to invite Stephen Mithen to be on the arms-length AIRS Advisory Board. He has accepted. I also met with Rena Sharon who was unable to attend the Friday meeting, and also Boris Kleber from Tubingen conducting remarkable brain imaging research who will likely be joining the BRAMs group in a postdoctoral position in Montreal next year. A poster on the suggested protocol for singing acquisition data (Cohen, Armstrong, Lannan & Coady) was presented.
