« Music and auditory-motor integration in the human brain. »

This talk will describe brain imaging and stimulation studies aimed at understand how auditory-motor representations for pitch and rhythm are encoded in the human brain.

As part of the Seminar course in cognitive psychology and Neuropsychology (PSY6407)

Workshop on the Auditory Frequency-Following Response (FFR)

Publié par: le 24 février 2017 | Pas de commentaire

The frequency-following response (FFR) recorded from the human scalp using electroencephalography (EEG), is thought to reflect the basic neural representation of periodic sound on which higher-level processing of language and music is based. It has being extensively used in basic and clinical research, as it provides a measure of phase locking to a periodic stimulus, allowing non-invasive study of basic sound processing in the human auditory brain. However, the precise neural origins of the FFR are still debated, as well as the interpretation of the results obtained with it. In order to stimulate auditory research in this growing field, we intend to provide a gentle introduction to the FFR as a research technique, give a methodological overview, and present current and future directions. There will also be dedicated time for scientific discussion and knowledge exchange among CRBLM members and the community in general.

13:00 – 13:15   Introduction
13:15  – 14:00  Welcome to the wonderful world of the FFR – Alexandre Lehmann
14:00 – 15:00  FFR Methods: pre-processing and analysis – Héctor Orozco Pérez
15:00 – 15:20  Coffee break
15:20 – 16:30  Current topics & future directions in FFR research – Emily Coffey
16:30 – 17:00  Q&A’s, Discussion
17:00 – 19:00  Social event & networking

Audible Medical Alarms – Adapting Brain, Music and Sound Research to Clinical Medicine

Abstract: Sound exposure in the hospital can have deleterious effects on patients and practitioners. Clinicians perform worse on tasks involving patient monitoring in noisy and highly attentionally demanding environments.

Publié par: le 16 février 2017 | Pas de commentaire

You are being invited to participate in a research study for a master thesis related to the perception and imitation of a second language. The purpose of this project is to better understand how native English speaking musicians can perceive and imitate the intonation of a second language.

Your participation in this study would consist of one meeting of 1 hour 15 minutes that would take place at UQAM or at McGill.

Jaakko Karamaeki (Schoenwiesner Lab) will present the article titled « Rapid tuning shifts in human auditory cortex
enhance speech intelligibility ».

Significance

Experience shapes our perception of the world on a moment-to-moment basis. This robust perceptual effect of experience parallels a change in the neural representation of stimulus features, though the nature of this representation and its plasticity are not well-understood.
Spectrotemporal receptive field (STRF) mapping describes the neural response to acoustic features, and has been used to study contextual effects on auditory receptive fields in animal models..
