I will be presenting at both the the SMART Cognitive Science Conference and the bi-annual conference of the NVP this month. At SMART, I will present behavioural data from several tests that assess beat perception abilities during the Musicality Phenotype workshop. At NVP, I will present EEG data looking at the difference between beat-based and […]
On November 15, 2017, I gave a mini-lecture for the brightest primary school student in the country during the Mensa SlimmerIQuiz finals. You can watch the entire lecture below.
Two journalists from popular science magazine Quest came to visit me at UvA to find out whether they are any good at hearing the beat in rhythm. Find out about their results here!
