Introduction
I am a PhD student in the Department for Neurology at the Charité investigating acquired musical anhedonia after focal brain damage, which is the selective loss of emotions towards music. Beforehand I obtained a master's degree in Systematic Musicology with focus on Neuromusicology at the University of Hamburg. My main reasearch interest is in how music affects the brain and what advantages it can have for neurological patients

Some people, although they are perfectly healthy and happy, cannot enjoy music. These individuals have musical anhedonia, a condition which can be congenital or may occur after focal brain damage. To date, only a few cases of acquired musical anhedonia have been reported in the literature with lesions of the temporo-parietal cortex being particular...

Project
We investigate the emotional abilities of 30 patients with chronic left or right fronto-temporal stroke compared to 30 healthy controls. In a music task, participants evaluate valence and arousal experienced during different film music excerpts. Physiological parameters (skin conductance, heart rate, respiration) are recorded simultaneously. We aim at identifying the frequency of acquired musical anhedonia in stroke patients and at revealing lesion-dependent varieties in the sensitivity to different musical emotions.
