"Trumpets of the Renaissance: Structural Development and Applications"

Through scientific discovery and improvements in metallurgy and brass working, Renaissance-era Europe flourished with new methods and developments for refined trumpets in a society primarily dominated with vocal music.

“The Influence of Music on Image Recall”

This study, conducted for Dr. Bradlee Gamblin’s Experimental Psychology course, hypothesized that the effect of background music in the form of instrumental music will have an effect on image recall. 47 undergraduates, split into music and non-music groups, studied an image containing familiar objects to measure picture recall. The results indicated that there was no significant effect.

Congratulations, Ashley, Erinn, Kylie, Makayla, and Paige!
