The Hearing Systems Group was represented by several members at the kick-off meeting of the Erasmus Mundus Student Exchange Network in Auditory Cognitive Neuroscience coordinated by the University of Leipzig on April 25-27.

The Auditory Cognitive Neuroscience network is funded by the EU and aims to increase the mobility of researchers between North America and Europe.

Besides presentations by all the fellows and scientific presentations about cognitive auditory neuroscience, one highlight was a music-science lecture by Professor Altenmüller from the University of Hannover in Germany, guiding through 30.000 years of music history with corresponding instruments and neurobiological explanations about the connection between music and emotion.
This broad network extends the international connections of the Hearing Systems Group all over Europe and North America and provides promising opportunities for collaboration.

One of our PhD students Federica Bianchi is awarded a fellowship to visit the Montréal Neurological Institute, group of Professor Zatorre, where she will work for six months.
This exchange is funded by the Erasmus Mundus program.
During her external stay, Federica will design a new paradigm to investigate objective correlates of pitch salience via functional magnetic resonance imaging. 

"I am looking forward to learning more about imaging and working together with an internationally leading group in neuroscience"
