Peer Herholz, Ph.D.
I am currently a postdoctoral researcher in cognitive and computational auditory neuroscience partly affiliated with the Montreal Neurological Institute & Hospital (MNI) located at McGill University & with the International Laboratory for Brain, Music and Sound Research (BRAMS) which is jointly run by the Université de Montréal & McGill University. More precisely, I work in the Zatorre & NeuroDataScience: ORIGAMI labs. Additionally, I am also affiliated with the Virtual Data Lab and part of the ReproNim training team.
I’m interested in how human and non-human brains, as well as machines process sounds, especially music, which I mainly investigate using fMRI and pattern analyses/computational approaches, but more and more also aided by EEG and behaviour. Furthermore, I am interested in the structure and organization of the human auditory pathway, as well as data analysis approaches (e.g., multimodal data integration, alignment methods & statistical learning). All of the above as open, transparent and reproducible as possible.
