Thanks to IFLScience for resharing my study!! :) :) 
We’re exposed to music a lot in our daily lives, whether that’s through listening to the radio or our mp3 players, wandering around shops or people humming tunes in the street. And then one song gets stuck in our heads. It relentlessly pops back into our minds without warning, without a trigger, and we can’t help but start singing to ourselves.

Story
Tagline
Interdisciplinary researcher in cognitive neurosciences, signal processing and electronics. Jazz musician.
Introduction
Born in France in 1982, Nicolas has grown up in a musical family, and has been initially trained on the violin, classical percussion and music theory. He later studied vibraphone and has been performing regularly with jazz and rock ensembles on the drums and the vibraphone since 1999. In parallel, Nicolas studied electronical engineering, and graduated with a PhD from Universite de Bourgogne. Since 2010, he is a postdoctoral researcher in the cognitive neurosciences of music, with a focus on rhythm perception and production, as well as musical imagery. His projects include clinical work on the effect of rhythm in the rehabilitation of Parkinson’s Disease, as well as basic research in brain oscillations, musical performance in drumming, and spontaneous musical imagery (the “tune in the head” phenomenon, also called “earworms”). His research is performed between Goldsmiths, University of London, in the Music Mind and Brain group, and the Max Planck Institute in Leipzig, Germany.
