Online absolute pitch study

This study investigates the phenomenon of absolute pitch, also known as “perfect pitch.” We are interested in how factors such as age, language background, and music background influence an individual’s ability to label isolated musical sounds. This research might provide insights into how perfect pitch develops and changes as a function of individual experience.

A large-scale online study of the long-term effects of concussion on cognition

map-marker.pngOnline

Every year, 1.2 million people are diagnosed with a concussion. For most, their symptoms will resolve within days of the incident. For about 10-30% of patients however, their symptoms will persist for months and maybe even years after the injury. The purpose of this study is to investigate whether sustaining a concussion leads to long-term adverse effects on general cognitive abilities.

Investigating the development of cognition in children

map-marker.pngOnline

Dr. Adrian Owen and the Owen Lab are conducting a series of studies on how the developing brains think. To do this, we are looking for children ages 7 - 14 years of age to perform twelve online cognitive tasks. We are also looking for the child's parents or substitute decision maker to fill out a demographic questionnaire about their child, which includes demographic questions like age and gender. This project will help us understand how different aspects of cognition develop across childhood.
