    Music Perception/Cognition

    I'm interested in how children's social behavior is impacted by singing and moving together, and how prosocial lyrics in songs affect children's behavior. I'm also interested in how children and adults use auditory and proprioceptive feedback when performing the skilled action of singing, and how efference copy informs subjects' perception of the quality of their singing.
