Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

By now, my research has focused at investigating the mechanisms of human auditory cognition, emotion, and expertise. Currently I investigate the possibilities of music to support well-being and learning. In future, I will focus my efforts to reveal the basic neurocognitive and motivational mechanisms of learning in real-life contexts using multimethodological and interdisplicinary approach.
