Drew’s research is motivated by the need to understand how the brain encodes, retrieves, and predicts musical information, and how this relates to higher-level processes such as memory and perception. Recent work has investigated the neural mechanisms responsible for auditory memory storage/retrieval and auditory sequence prediction using noninvasive neural recordings (M/EEG) in humans and direct neural recordings (ECoG) in rodents. The underlying purpose of his research is to strengthen foundational knowledge for better understanding the cognitive and neural processes associated with music cognition and perception.
