Léo Migotti Ramponi

Cognitive Sciences

He is interested in the application of formal semantics and pragmatics to non-linguistic systems such as music, dance, and more recently clothing. His PhD dissertation was an attempt at providing experimental data supporting the idea that music has meaning, by evidencing some common properties between music and language while conceptualizing the difference between both systems.
