The UC Music Experience Research Community Initiative (UC MERCI), is a multi-campus initiative to augment the scientific study of musical experience, communication, and behavior across the University of California. UC MERCI was one of five multicampus UC proposals (from among 200 submitted) to receive a 2015 UC President’s Research Catalyst Award. UC MERCI will encourage and facilitate UC researchers sharing their unique experimental resources and expertise while collaboratively developing and applying new methods to better understand and enhance the ability of musical experience and communication to affect and even transform the human mind and body. In the coming year a group of research students will have the opportunity to perform relevant research across UC campuses. For more details see merci.ucsd.edu
