Rie Matsunaga

Rie Matsunaga is an Associate Professor of Cognitive Science in the Department of Psychology at Kanagawa University. Her research has centered on processing mechanisms of melody perception, in particular tonality perception – i.e., how listeners perceive a sense of tonality for a given tone sequence. She and her colleagues pursue this issue from both cross-cultural and developmental viewpoints, using behavioral, neuroimaging, and computational approaches. Her current focus is the acquisition process of culture-specific tonality schemas.
