Hi, I'm Guilhem Marion
Researcher & Artist
I am currently a PhD student at Laboratoire des Systèmes Perceptifs of École Normale Supérieure in Paris and I closely collaborate with the Poeppel's Lab at the Psychology department of New-York University. My work is supported by the 2020 Chaire Beauté(s) PSL-L'Oréal.
I research how music is encoded by the brain and how those processes are related to emotional and cultural factors using data drawn from behavioral, cortical (EEG, MEG, ECoG) and intra-cortial recordings. My work focuses on the neural underpinnings of melodic expectations (the more or less probable character of each note in a melody), how they can be shaped by culture and education, and how these mechanisms evolves over passive exposure to music. In addition to my scientific work, I am a musician and a multimedia artist. My artistic projects are partly about perception and the experience of subjectivity.
