The effects of prior experience on cognitive control during syntactic processing in music

 

In both music and language, information must be presented and processed in serial order to be properly integrated. According to the Shared Syntactic Integration Resource Hypothesis (SSIRH; Patel, 2003; 2008) resources to process the syntax of music and language are shared, and these resources have limited capacity.

In this talk, I will discuss a study in which we examined whether cognitive control is one of these shared processes and whether prior experience with syntactic representations modulates how cognitive control is involved during syntactic processing in music. In particular, we examined the effects of musical training and bilingualism. In addition, we examined whether and how prior experience with auditory processing in the form of tonal language use modulates syntactic processing in music. I will discuss also how the Adele Miccio Memorial Travel Award and NSF PIRE Fellowship allowed me to conduct this study.
