Matthew Sachs

Matthew Sachs received his PhD from the Brain and Creativity Institute at the University of Southern California. Matthew's research focuses on understanding the neural and behavioral mechanisms involved in emotions and feeling in response to music. His projects involve applying data-driven, multivariate models to capture the patterns of neural activity that accompany uniquely human experiences with music, such as feelings of chills, pleasurable sadness, and nostalgia.

Project Title: Mapping the Rich Tapestry of Music-Evoked Emotions
