• Characterizing Statistical Learning of Music 

      Cui, Anja-Xiaoxing
      Understanding how we gain representations of music is crucial for a comprehensive understanding of music perception. Several studies suggest that listeners extract statistical regularities in music via passive exposure, ...
    • Familiarity and Preference for Pitch Probability Profiles 

      Cui, Anja-Xiaoxing; Collett, J. Meghan; Troje, Nikolaus F.; Cuddy, L. Lola (2016-02-18)
      We investigated familiarity and preference judgments of participants toward a novel musical system. We exposed participants to tone sequences generated from a novel pitch probability profile. Afterward, we either asked ...
    • Short and Long Term Representation of an Unfamiliar Tone Distribution 

      Cui, Anja-Xiaoxing; Diercks, Charlette; Troje, Nikolaus F.; Cuddy, L. Lola (2016-08-11)
      We report on a study conducted to extend our knowledge about the process of gaining a mental representation of music. Several studies, inspired by research on the statistical learning of language, have investigated statistical ...
    • Unintentional Learning of Musical Pitch Hierarchy 

      Cui, Anja-Xiaoxing (2014-08-14)
      It has been proposed that our knowledge about music is acquired passively, without intention, through exposure to music (Zatorre & Salimpoor, 2013). Research has shown that the mental tonal hierarchy of a listener, as ...
