The Mind Music Machine (tri-M) Lab is a transdisciplinary research group based in Industrial and Systems Engineering and Computer Science at Virginia Tech and Cognitive Science and Computer Science at Michigan Tech. Mind (emotions as well as cognition) is our ultimate research theme. Music (sound and speech) is our language and methodology to work with. Machinery (computers and systems) is our research tool and an analogy of mind. The MISSION of the lab is (1) understanding the mechanisms of the human mind and (2) designing better interactions between people and technologies. To this end, we approach our research problems at the psychological level using empirical experiments, the neurological level using neuroergonomic measures, and the computational level using mathematical modeling.
