The Music, Mind and Brain group was started by Lauren Stewart and Daniel Müllensiefen in 2009. Since then, we have been awarded funding from the Economic and Social Research Council, the Leverhulme Trust and from industry (including Linn, Jo Jo Jingles, Spotify, Nestle Purina, Adam&EveDDB, and the BBC) to work on projects addressing the cognitive, computational and neuroscientific bases of musical understanding and behavior. We are interested in both basic and applied (educational and clinical) contexts and we frequently provide consultancy both within and beyond the academic sector.
Music Mind & Brain MSc
Predating the launch of our research group, Lauren Stewart founded the MSc in Music, Mind and Brain, an internationally unique programme spanning modules such as Music Perception and Cognitive Neuroscience of Music, as well as an Eminent Speaker series, with internationally renowned guest lecturers.
