PSYC 31500 - Music and Speech Perception

Course Credit: 1
MUSIC AND SPEECH PERCEPTION Music and speech have long been proposed to have common evolutionary roots. Both have a hierarchical structure and complex rhythm. Both convey emotion and share many other communicative properties. In this class we will examine theory, methodology and phenomena surrounding the perception and production of music and speech with a particular focus on the overlap between these two domains. One goal of this course is to provide a strong foundation for conducting a research project in this area, either as an I.S. project or in another capacity. Prerequisite(s): PSYC-25000
