Ever noticed how you can direct your ears? When you’re surrounded by mumbling and you want to hear the person in front of you? Or the contrary, when your granddad can’t hear you, however loud he turns his hearing device?
Project Focus studies human auditive filtering, in relation to emotional reactions, from both scientific and artistic perspective. The study contributes to the development of hearing devices, that use the analysis of brain activity to improve the focus!
The work of Professor Elia Formisano of the Faculty of Psychology and Neuroscience of Maastricht University is coming together with the work of composer Jesse Passenier.
