MIND Lab: Recruiting Musicians and Non-Musicians to Investigate the Effect of Music on the Brain!
The Music, Imaging, and Neural Dynamics (MIND) Laboratory is recruiting female jazz improvising musicians, male and female classical musicians and non-musicians to participate in a research study on how music learning affects the brain. Below are the qualifications for jazz and classical musicians to participate:
• Female jazz improvising musicians must have 5+ years of training in music that included improvisation, and current participation in improvisatory musical activities for 1+ hours per week.
• Classical non-improvising musicians must have 5+ years of musical training of non-improvisational musical training and current participation in musical activities for 1+ hour per week.
All studies will take place in Northeastern’s Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Complex (805 Columbus Ave, Boston, MA). All participants must be aged 18 - 65, have normal hearing, and pass the MRI safety screening questionnaire to take part in the study. Eligible participants will complete surveys, listening and cognitive tasks, and receive an EEG or MRI of their brain, and will be compensated at a rate of $15 per hour. If interested, please email your phone number to MIND Lab at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will schedule a phone interview to determine your eligibility to participate in our study.
