This Academy Colloquium will bring together leading experts from neurobiology, cognitive psychology, music cognition and genetics to discuss the phenotypes of musicality, how to measure them, and genetic techniques for studying human variation, and the possibilities for combining musicality indices with the latest genomic methods, genetic pleiotropy between traits, and the instalment of an international consortium on the biological bases of musicality.

Preceding the international Academy Colloquium, a Master Class (19 June 2019) for young researchers, PhD-students and research master students in music cognition, genetics and related fields is organised.

Participation in the Master Class is free.

Register for the master class.

Young researchers, PhD-students, and master students in the fields of music cognition, psychology, genetics and related fields are cordially invited to submit an abstract (300 words) for a 10-minute presentation of their research.

Upload your abstract (register first).
