4 PhD positions “Brain & Music” in the European Initial Training Network EBRAMUS

EBRAMUS (Europe BRAin and MUSic) is a consortium of European research centres to study new perspectives for stimulating cognitive and sensory processes using music. EBRAMUS offers a unique, interdisciplinary training program to study the behavioural, functional and structural effects of music on rehabilitation, learning, and facilitation of cognitive processes. Its goal is to train PhD students in behavioural and neuroscience (EEG, fMRI, etc.) methods applied to the investigation of the use of music in boosting language processing, learning, memory as well as motor behaviour.

Four 3-year PhD scholarships are available with projects within EBRAMUS:
-CIM: gesture-based audio stimulation in cochlear implant users.
(Marc Leman, Belgium, marc.leman[ at ]
-Boosting language processing and implicit learning with temporal structures.
(Barbara Tillmann, France, btillmann[ at ]
-Does music stimulation boost cognitive abilities in deaf children and/or Alzheimer patients?
(Emmanuel Bigand, France, emmanuel.bigand[ at ]
-Brain imaging and neuropsychology in patients with memory disorders
(Séverine Samson, France, severine.samson[ at ]
