Music Cognition Online

No, not a new journal, though that would be so cool. Instead, I offer a blog and a research project. First, the blog, by Henkjan Honing. Henkjan belongs to the Dutch study group that runs those online music listening projects I've posted about before, most recently here. He is also a great guy, very smart, with incredibly interesting hair. Music Matters is his new venture, which looks to be a great resource in music cognition. Plus you can see pictures of adorable babies wired up for reactions to Balkan music.

Second, an experiment being run by MIT's Media Lab. They are examining "the universality of various aspects of music perception," with a test called the Music Universals Study. It takes about 15 minutes to complete.
