The perception of temporal regularities is essential to synchronize to music and dance. Here, we explore the detection of isochrony in two mammal species. We trained rats (Rattus norvegicus) and humans (Homo sapiens) to discriminate sound sequences with regular intervals from sound sequences with irregular intervals using a go/no-go paradigm. We used four different tempi in the training sessions and two new tempi in the tests. We found that both rats and humans responded more to the novel regula...

Abstract The present study explores the relationship between the rhythmic structure of music and the spatial dimension of sound. We study how the brain interacts with spatially-separated sounds to build up a metrical structure. Participants listened to sequences of isochronous sounds that came from different positions on the azimuth plane: 0° (control condition), ±30°, ±60° or ±90° (spatial conditions). Ternary meter was signaled by the alternation of one sound on one side and two sounds on the ...

Recent research has demonstrated top-down effects on meter induction in the auditory modality. However, little is known about these effects in the visual domain, especially without the involvement of motor acts such as tapping. In the present study, we aim to assess whether the projection of meter on auditory beats is also present in the visual domain. We asked sixteen musicians to internally project binary (i.e. a strong-weak pattern) and ternary (i.e. a strong-weak-weak pattern) meter onto sep...
