« Origin and constraints of temporal predictions in auditory attention »

Benjamin Morillon, Institut de Neurosciences des Systèmes, Université Marseille

Abstract :

Temporal predictions are fundamental instruments for facilitating sensory selection, allowing humans to exploit regularities in the world. Recent evidence indicates that the motor system instantiates predictive timing mechanisms, helping to synchronize temporal fluctuations of attention with the timing of events in a task-relevant stream. I will present a neurophysiological account for this theory in a set of human behavioral and magnetoencephalography experiments.
On the one hand, I will estimate the impact of neural activity in motor areas and of overt rhythmic movements on the temporal selection of auditory stimuli.
On the other hand, I will investigate the parameters governing the emergence of an auditory-motor coupling during auditory perception.
Overall, the presented results will highlight the role of motor areas in auditory perception, and their fundamental implication in the analysis of contextual temporal information.
