A Subject Matter Authority In Music Cognition – Elizabeth Hellmuth Margulis, Ph.D.

While conducting research for a book I am writing I discovered a subject matter authority in music cognition to share with my readers.  The book, On Repeat, How Music Plays the Mind by Elizabeth Hellmuth Margulis from Oxford University Press is a principle work that defines the psychology of repetition in music. (a.k.a. earworm)

Elizabeth Hellmuth Margulis, Ph.D. is conducting definitive research in the cognitive science of music. She is Professor and Director of the Music Cognition Lab at the University of Arkansas.

 

 

In addition, Elizabeth Hellmuth Margulis is a contributor to Psychology Today where she authors the blog, Looking At Listening, Music and the Mind.

Her insights into the ways our senses formulate music interpretation provides greater substantiation of our “sonic” psyche. I look forward to the next level of scientific and psychological revelations from Doctor Margulis’s research studies.

      1. Music is thought to be helpful for people with aphasia and stroke patients. For some reason it helps them organize thought and words. What do you think about that?

      2. That sounds like a great movie. I agree with you that music has a powerful impact on the brain. I have seen some programs where patients had lost the ability to speak and yet they were able to sing what they wanted to say.
