About Susan Maury

My time is shared between completing a PhD looking at the cognitive benefits of group singing, and employment as a social policy researcher.  Previously, I spent 20 years in the international development sector, and hold a Masters of Science in Organisational Behaviour.  While this blog is focused on the psychology of music, social justice issues are also discussed.

Unless otherwise credited, all work is my own.

One thought on “About Susan Maury

  1. A fascinating topic! The first socially unifying characteristic of music that pops into my mind is shared pulse, which unifies reponsive movements among a group of performers and listeners. Perhaps it also regulates pulse rates and hormonal responses. For a short time a group of people are all experiencing the same or similar reactions at exactly the same time – very rare!
