The Mind Music Machine (tri-M) Lab is a transdisciplinary research group based in Industrial and Systems Engineering at Virginia Tech and Cognitive Science and Computer Science at Michigan Tech. Mind is our ultimate research theme. Music is our language and methodology to work with. Machinery is our research tool and an analogy of mind. The research goal of the lab is understanding the mechanisms of the human mind and designing better interactions between people and technologies. To this end, we use various instruments: computer vision technologies, display wall, digital audio workstation, driving simulators, neurophysiological equipment, robots and facilities.
