RCM Neuroscience

RCM Neuroscience

Welcome to RCM Neuroscience, the in-house Research Centre for The Royal Conservatory. We study how the mind makes music and how music shapes the mind.

The RCM Research Centre is dedicated to understanding the connection between music and the mind. We run research studies in our in-house laboratory examining topics such as the benefits of early childhood music education, links between speech and language, memory for music, and much more. Our work goes towards scientific papers, artist and educator training, and public outreach, to promote better understanding of the science of music.


We invite people of all ages and all musical abilities to participate in our scientific studies! If you or someone you know is interested in volunteering for a study, please contact us at [email protected] or 416.408.2824 x463.
