To celebrate the scientific and cultural diversity of BRAMS, we are starting a “BRAMS Scientific Social”. The event will be held on a Thursday once a month and will provide a platform to facilitate scientific and cultural exchange. BRAMS members will get a chance to share new and exciting research with their fellow colleagues.

Ignacio Spiousas (Armony Lab) will present the article titled « Distinct Computational Principles Govern Multisensory Integration in Primary Sensory and Association Cortices ».

Significance

Rohe and Noppeney show that multisensory interactions are pervasive but governed by distinct computational principles across the cortical hierarchy. Critically, only parietal cortices integrated signals weighted by their bottom-up sensory reliabilities and top-down task relevance into multisensory spatial priority maps.

Neural Markers of Dyslexia in Human Development

Developmental dyslexia is a heritable learning disorder affecting reading and writing and predisposing to poor academic achievement. It is also associated with deficient language processing, e.g., specific language difficulties.

How to use the Online test of Amusia

Since the publication of the paper On-line identification of congenital amusia (Peretz et al. 2008), the Online test of Amusia has been used as a screening assessment of musical abilities in many studies and over the years, data from more than 15,000 adults have been recorded.

Beats affects sound processing at birth

Rhythm in its simplest form is a series of stressed and unstressed regular pulses. For humans, rhythm perception is a basic and arguably automatic mechanism functional from birth, which underlies music and possibly speech perception.

The most common method of analysis of fMRI data consists in comparing the BOLD signal in the brain with time series representing the various conditions of the experiment (e.g. task vs rest). Similarly, resting-state data is often analyzed by selecting a region of interest, computing the average BOLD signal in that region, and comparing it with signal elsewhere in the brain.
