Music Cognition & Communication Lab

We are interested in the life span, from infancy to aging.

At MCC Lab we study psychological processes linked with music – whether it is in the context of communication (music and language), emotion or cognition (benefits associated with music).

Operating as usual


MCCLab has its foundations in infancy research and close affiliation with the Middlesex University BabyLab, both of which are coordinated by Dr Fabia Franco ([email protected]).

Here you can see a visit to the lab of a ‘Junior Visiting Scientist’ taking part in our study that looks at cross-modal perception while listening to music with different emotional features.
We hope to see you soon in our lab or virtually (in your home) for some new fun studies that we are preparing!


MCCLab Research Digest

Listening to the music that matches your mood can improve your cognitive performance and help you regulate your emotions.



A warm welcome from the Music, Cognition & Communication Lab - A Middlesex University Research Team.
Very shortly, and as regularly as possible, we will be posting about the studies we have been working on here at the lab!

Stay tuned, well and safe!
