Beat Perception and Meter Induction in Vision and Spatial Audition His ongoing thesis is entitled “Neural and Evolutionary Correlates of Rhythm Processing through Beat and Meter.”The neural correlates of timing mechanisms are observed through electroencephalographic recordings and frequency analyses. The main goal is to better understand how our brain processes beat and meter across modalities, and attest the role of attention and the impact of formal music training on rhythmic perception. The evolutionary bases of these timing mechanisms are observed…

Pavillon Marie-Victorin, Room D-451 Title: A Global Survey of Rhythm Representations Abstract:  Over the past few years, cross-cultural comparative work has made various claims about the universality of aspects of music, aesthetic preferences, and emotion (Fritz 2009, Brown & Jordania 2013, Savage et al. 2015). However, recent work suggests that features that were previously regarded as universal —such as consonance / dissonance, or rhythm perception— may in fact be at least partially determined by culture (McDermott et al. 2016; Jacoby…

Pavillon Marie-Victorin, Room A-103

How baby gets the groove: Modeling rhythm learning, perceptual narrowing, and enculturation Ontogeny is a complex, emergent process that arises from interactions between the developing organism and the structures present in the rearing environment. In the field of infant development, one of the most well known consequences of organism-environment interactions is the adaption and re-organization of perception-action systems to structural regularities in the environment, a phenomenon called “perceptual narrowing” or “perceptual fine tuning.” Previous work suggests that infants’ perception of…
