General description

The EBRAMUS Spring School will take place in Ghent (Belgium) starting on the 29th of February 2012 and will finish on the 4th of March 2012 (late afternoon).  The topic of the Spring School is “Musical Protocols and Tools for Movement Activation and Rehabilitation.”



* Provide conceptual foundations for music-based rehabilitation

* Provide a hands-on trai ning and experience with interactive music tools for music-based rehabilitation

* Provide training in academic writing and in presentations

* Learn about technology transfer, and have a site visit to Cochlear (Mechelen)


Educational concept

The spring school focuses on hands-on training, using a learning concept that is based on tutorials and self-learning through guided practical experience. The morning sessions start with tutorials on embodiment, Max/MSP, statistics, rehabilitation and issues related to technology transfer. After these tutorials, hands-on trainings are scheduled. The afternoon sessions are devoted to practical training in small groups that work on concrete experiments, writing skills and presentations. The evening is devoted to social activities including a touristic visit, a concert and a free podium activity.



The Spring School is hosted by IPEM (Institu te for Psychoacoustics and Electronic Music). IPEM is a center of excellence (“Methusalem”) for Systematic Musicology of Ghent University, Belgium. IPEM does pioneering research work in the field of embodied music cognition and mediation technologies. The institute consists of an interdisciplinary team of researchers and staff, lead by Prof. Dr. Marc Leman.



EBRAMUS (Europe BRAin and MUsic) is a consortium of European research centers to study new perspectives for stimulating cognitive and sensory processes using music. EBRAMUS offers a unique, interdisciplinary graduate program to study the behavioral, functional, structural effects of music on rehabilitation, learning, and facilitation of cognitive processes. Its goal is to train PhD students in behavioral and neuroscience (EEG, fMRI, etc.) methods applied to the investigation of the use of music in boosting language processing, learning, memory as well as motor behavior.
