Prof. Christine Tsang, PhD
Christine Tsang is a developmental psychologist and Director of the Babylab at Huron University College, London, Ontario (Canada), where she also researches and teaches in the Department of Psychology.
One of her main research focuses is the development of perception capabilities for complex auditive signals, such as language and music, in early childhood. She is an expert in the field of habituation techniques in perception research with babies and young children (0-18 months) and conducts research particularly on the differing perception processes in language and song, the perception of timbre, tempo and emotions in musical signals, as well as the communicative function of language and song aimed at children.
Christine Tsang will be at the CAS as a visiting fellow in June and July 2012 upon invitation from Dr. Simone Falk (CAS Junior Researcher in Residence 2012).
