Putting brain training to the test
‘Brain training’, or the goal of improved cognitive function through the regular use of computerized tests, is a multimillion-pound industry, yet in our view scientific evidence to support itsExpand

Feeling the Beat: Premotor and Striatal Interactions in Musicians and Nonmusicians during Beat Perception
  • J. Grahn, J. Rowe
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • The Journal of Neuroscience
  • 10 June 2009
Little is known about the underlying neurobiology of rhythm and beat perception, despite its universal cultural importance. Here we used functional magnetic resonance imaging to study rhythmExpand

The cognitive functions of the caudate nucleus
The basal ganglia as a whole are broadly responsible for sensorimotor coordination, including response selection and initiation. However, it has become increasingly clear that regions of the basalExpand

Impairment of beat-based rhythm discrimination in Parkinson's disease
Humans often synchronize movements to the beat, indicating that motor areas may be involved in detecting or generating a beat. The basal ganglia have been shown to be preferentially activated byExpand

Training the Emotional Brain: Improving Affective Control through Emotional Working Memory Training
Affective cognitive control capacity (e.g., the ability to regulate emotions or manipulate emotional material in the service of task goals) is associated with professional and interpersonal success.Expand

Into the groove: Can rhythm influence Parkinson's disease?
Previous research has noted that music can improve gait in several pathological conditions, including Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease and stroke. Current research into auditory-motorExpand

The Role of the Basal Ganglia in Beat Perception
  • J. Grahn
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences
  • 1 July 2009
Perception of musical rhythms is culturally universal. Despite this special status, relatively little is known about the neurobiology of rhythm perception, particularly with respect to beatExpand

Finding and Feeling the Musical Beat: Striatal Dissociations between Detection and Prediction of Regularity
Perception of temporal patterns is critical for speech, movement, and music. In the auditory domain, perception of a regular pulse, or beat, within a sequence of temporal intervals is associated withExpand
