The Finnish Centre of Excellence is an interdisciplinary research consortium funded by the Academy of Finland (2008–2013) that explores the relationships between physical, perceptual, emotional, and social aspects of musical engagement. The research themes of the Centre consist broadly of emotions, movement, rehabilitation, and learning, all with respect to music. Within these topic areas, particular emphasis is given to perception of musical elements such as rhythm, melody, and timbre (including their neural representations); improvement of language learning; effectiveness of music therapy and various music interventions; development of computational analysis tools for music research; aesthetic experiences of music; music-induced movement (including rhythmic synchronization); emotion expression; and motor communication.
