Matt graduated from The Ohio State University in 2017 with a degree in Neuroscience. He is analyzing the perception of melody and rhythm in a series of fMRI studies. Outside of class, he plays the Sousaphone in The Ohio State University Marching Band, fences, and plays the guitar.
Geoff Green is a recent graduate of The Ohio State University, Spring ’17, with a degree in Neuroscience and minor in Engineering Sciences. During his gap year, Geoff will be leading the fNIR, functional near infrared, study on students in the Columbus public school system dealing with speech/language deficiencies by way of implementing music intervention lessons focused on metronomic skills to enhance the brain regions where music and language processing overlap. Brain activity will be recorded before, during, and after music interventions and analyzed using certain NIRx packages in Matlab to reveal progress. Hobbies include playing football/basketball for local leagues, biking through Columbus/Gahanna, and playing tenor saxophone/creating tracks to provide music for Crossroads Ministries production company and DNG inc drama ministries.
