Auditory Cognitive Neuroscience Symposium in Montreal, April 16th

Dear all,

The International Laboratory for Brain, Music and Sound Research (BRAMS) is pleased to announce a full-day symposium on Auditory Cognitive Neuroscience, held at the Montreal Neurological Institute one day before the Cognitive Neuroscience Society meeting.
This is the second announcement; please find the final program below.
