Welcome to Music 257: Neuroplasticity and Musical Gaming!

Rewiring brain

Welcome to Music 257: Neuroplasticity and Musical Gaming! We are looking forward to an exciting quarter exploring auditory sensory perception and the auditory pathway, neurology fundamentals including neuroplasticity, and how informed game design can literally shape the mind of the player! Course materials will be available through this website. We will also be using Canvas for assignment submission and distribution of additional materials. Class meetings occur on Fridays from 10:30-12:20 PDT and on Tuesday evenings from 6:00-7:50 PM PDT. Each class will be a mixture of Lecture and Lab, so it is important to attend each class. If you have any questions about the course, feel free to email Camille or Poppy.

All meetings this quarter will take place via Zoom, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes both lectures and labs. Links to the Zoom sessions will be distributed through Canvas.

We will be using Piazza as a forum for questions and discussion throughout the course. You can sign up here. The Piazza access code will be distributed via a Canvas announcement.

Looking forward to seeing everyone in class! Can’t wait to see the games you create this quarter!
