Negin Motamed Yeganeh

Postdoctoral Fellow


I work on a novel project with a collaboration of an interdisciplinary team over the UBC campus to answer this question: “Does opera training sculpt the brain to learn?”. The immediate goal of this study is to evaluate the hypothesis that intensive language practice as a part of opera training can lead to changes in the brain structure and brain function that support improvements in learning, memory, and executive function. The importance of this work would advance the science of music and language psychology.
