Subject: Categorical Perception of Musical Intervals

Supervisor: Dr. Roni Granot

Abstract: My research examines categorical perception of musical intervals. Categorical perception is a cognitive phenomena in which a continuous stimulus is divided perceptually to create distinct units. The research aims to expand our knowledge on categorical perception to the music field, as well as study its implications to our understanding on cultural differences in music perception and on perfect pitch.
