Anna Marie Fennell Awarded Psi Chi Undergraduate Research Grant

image1Congratulations to Anna Marie on receiving the Psi Chi Undergraduate Research Grant for the 2019 Spring Semester to fund her honors thesis! Her project investigates whether the cognitive mechanisms shared between music and language processing rely on working memory resources necessary for syntactic processing. She will use a dual-task approach in which people read syntactically complex sentences while holding onto items in memory (words, musical phrases, or visual layouts of dots) and will compare performance between musicians and non-musicians.
