Funding approved for the University of California Music Experience Research Community Initiative

CMB faculty member Petr Janata and a team of distinguished researchers from other University of California campuses have just received a $300,000 grant to fund the University of California Music Experience Research Community Initiative (UC MERCI).  This initiative is designed to foster collaborative research by UC researchers statewide that will focus on musical experience and communication by combining state-of-the-art methods for imaging brain activity and music with advanced data mining techniques. It will address the "dynamics of brain and body interactions involved in music listening, composing, performance, memory, therapy, and learning."
