The vision behind RITMO is to reveal the basic cognitive mechanism(s) underlying human rhythm, using music, motion and audiovisual media as empirical points of departure. 

The research will be highly interdisciplinary, combining methods from musicology, psychology and informatics to study rhythm as a fundamental property that shapes and underpins human cognition, behaviour and culture.

RITMO is organized under the Department of Musicology at the Faculty of Humanities, in close collaboration with the Department of Psychology at the Faculty of Social Sciences and the Department of Informatics at the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences.
