MUSIC COGNITION This course focuses on the mental processes underlying music perception, performance and composition. Following a discussion of basic hearing mechanisms, students examine research on perception of musical elements (e.g., tone, interval, triad, harmony and rhythm) and then proceed to broader issues (e.g., musical memory, meaning, aesthetics and intelligence). Music cognition is also compared to other kinds of cognition. Students conduct experimental research. NOTE: While students with musical background would be especially interested in this course, there is no need for prior formal training or knowledge of music. Cross-listed with Music (cf.
