RAMA’s research strategy focuses on musical perception, cognition and learning.
Hereby, RAMA aims to maintain its research focus where the academy, as an artistic and pedagogical educational institution, has its particular competences and where the research possesses the greatest potential in relation to the academy’s other activities.
Music in the brain
Parts of RAMA’s research activities take place in the context of the Danish National Research Foundation’s Center for Music-in-the-brain (MIB), established through a unique cooperation between Department of Clinical Medicine at Aarhus University and Center for Functional Integrative Neuroscience (CFIN) and headed by professor Peter Vuust. As an example, MIB researchers, with the use of state-of-the-art brain scanning technology, examine how musical training may change the human brain’s processing of music.
In a wider perspective this research has the potential to further develop the way in which we listen to, play and teach music.
