Glenn Schellenberg, Ph.D
Professor of Developmental/Cognitive Psychology
University of Toronto, Mississauga
My primary research area focuses on cognitive developmental issues in the auditory domain. I am especially interested in music perception and cognition, particularly on reciprocal influences between basic psychological processes and musical structures. I am also interested in the cognitive (nonmusical) consequences of formal music lessons. Some of my research focuses on special populations, such as hearing-impaired children with cochlear implants and children with Williams syndrome. I have secondary research interests in social psychology on issues related to gender, sexuality, and disease.
