hyperMusic

My masters thesis project aims to determine a mapping of the neural substrates of social interaction, as indexed by EEG, while two pianists play with each other. Following research previously published from our lab, we also gather video data from our participants to determine if our experimental manipulation is working or not (i.e. “information flows” from the leader to the follower)
