Theme 2: About

From the AIRS Milestone Document

Laurel Trainor (McMaster University) and Christine Tsang (University of Western Ontario) will lead a program of research that begins in Year 1 as a basic inquiry into the relation between perception and production of singing and an investigation of the sensory and motor constraints on production accuracy. Year 2 will examine factors affecting singing development such as type of language (e.g., tonal vs non-tonal), formal training, environments (home, school, community), and cross-cultural differences, laying the foundation for  beginning to examine in Year 3 the correlation between singing and brain measurements using EEG and MRI, as the basis of a cognitive neuro-social scientific model of singing development.
