Dr Diana Omigie, Goldsmiths Lecturer in Psychology, gave a tour of the Tony Cokes exhibition exploring how the affective qualities of the scores in his videos are explored from a neuroscientific perspective. Omigie’s research aims to refine our understanding of the cognitive and neural mechanisms underlying music-induced emotion and pleasure. She uses a combination of methods to examine the extent to which salient changes in musical structure induces pleasurable arousal and information-seeking behaviour. She is also interested in the physiological and neural correlates of more complex emotional states driven by engagement with music as an art form.
