Frank Russo


Frank Russo is a professor of Psychology at Ryerson University. He conducts basic research on the biological, cognitive, and social-emotional bases of music and speech. He also engages in two related lines of applied research. The first seeks to develop and optimize assistive and rehabilitative technologies that may support the communication of emotion. The second assesses the potential for music-based interventions (especially singing) to contribute to health and wellbeing. His work tends to be interdisciplinary in nature but is most closely aligned with perceptual science, cognitive science, emotion science, and neuroplasticity.
