The Centre for Research on Brain, Language and Music unites researchers whose work explores the unique neurobiological and social endowment of language and music.

Our emphasis on comparative studies of the neuroscience of language and music and our strong focus on development, psycholinguistics and disordered function puts us in a unique position vis à vis other research groups to gather deep insights into brain organization for complex cognitive processes with implications for application in clinical, rehabilitation, and pedagogic realms. This bold initiative represents a unique focus within Quebec and Canada, on the theoretical, behavioral and neuroscientific principles of language and music unparalleled in the world.
