February Main Meeting
Riza Veloso, who is currently a PhD candidate at the University of NSW, will be our guest speaker in February. Riza’s interest is in music psychology and her research involves investigating how people in the general population respond to music, then applying these findings to research involving people with dementia. Her goal is to improve the wellbeing and mental health of the ageing population. Riza is currently seeking older individuals (without dementia) to complete a university approved online survey. She is interested in this particular age group’s relationship to music.
