The songs stuck in your head: The representation and use of thematic music. A research discussion presented by Dr. Cynthia Sifonis.
Music is an integral part of the human experience.  Not only does listening to music provide us with pleasure on a daily basis, it is an important component of celebrations, religion, sports and entertainment.  This suggests that we associate certain types of music with certain events, places, people and activities. However, little research exists examining the representation of these associations in memory and their use in creative tasks. 
Please join us, October 31 from 12-1, in Gold Room C of the Oakland Center for an interdisciplinary exploration of the representation of musical associations in semantic memory and how these representations are used in creative tasks.
This event is being co-sponsored by the Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies program and Psi Chi. Free food and drinks will be provided.
