Date: Thursday 9 February 2017
Time: 14:00-15:30
Location: Room F1.15, ILLC, Science Park 107, Amsterdam

In the first music reading group of 2017, we will have a discussion on a recent cross-cultural study employing iterated learning to tease out priors on rhythmic categories. Bas Cornelissen will open the discussion with a short introduction to the paper.The paper to be discussed is the following: Jacoby, N., & McDermott, J. H. (2017). Integer Ratio Priors on Musical Rhythm Revealed Cross-culturally by Iterated Reproduction. Current Biology, 27, 1–12. http://doi.org/10.1016/j.cub.2016.12.031
