Neural correlates of motor–sensory temporal recalibration

Motor-Sensory Recalibration Modulates Perceived Simultaneity of Cross-Modal Events at Different Distances

The results support the hypothesis that perceptual timing derives from and is calibrated by the authors' motor interactions with the world.

The Role of Awareness on Motor-Sensory Temporal Recalibration

Temporal recalibration (TR) may arise to realign asynchronous stimuli after exposure to a short, constant delay between voluntary movement and sensory stimulus. The objective of this study was to

Effect before Cause: Supramodal Recalibration of Sensorimotor Timing

This work uses temporal adaptation to investigate the processing stage and generality of the sensorimotor timing estimates and suggests a high-level, supramodal recalibration mechanism.

The critical events for motor-sensory temporal recalibration

It would seem that the critical timing relationship for motor-sensory temporal recalibration is between tactile signals relating to the completion of an action and the subsequent auditory percept.

Audio-motor but not visuo-motor temporal recalibration speeds up sensory processing

The results indicate that adjustments of audio-motor synchrony can to some extent be explained by a change in the speed of auditory sensory processing.

Sensorimotor temporal recalibration within and across limbs.

It is confirmed that temporal recalibration occurs in the foot as well as the hand and is a robust motor phenomenon, and two patterns are interpreted to reflect a genuine change in how the time of action is represented, and a timing criterion shift, respectively.

Concurrent sensorimotor temporal recalibration to different lags for the left and right hand

The results suggest the existence of cross-talk between the hands, where both central and motor-specific components might be involved.



Dissociable contributions of the prefrontal and neocerebellar cortex to time perception.

Recalibration of audiovisual simultaneity

It is reported that after exposure to a fixed audiovisual time lag for several minutes, human participants showed shifts in their subjective simultaneity responses toward that particular lag, suggesting that the brain attempts to adjust subjective simultaneousity across different modalities by detecting and reducing time lags between inputs that likely arise from the same physical events.

Volition and Conflict in Human Medial Frontal Cortex

Neural Correlates of Auditory–Visual Stimulus Onset Asynchrony Detection

It is proposed that the insula, via its known short-latency connections with the tectal system, mediates temporally defined auditory–visual interaction at an early stage of cortical processing permitting phenomena such as the ventriloquist and the McGurk illusions.

Interactions between decision making and performance monitoring within prefrontal cortex

Using functional magnetic resonance imaging, this work demonstrates complementary and reciprocal roles for the human orbitofrontal (OFC) and dorsal anterior cingulate cortices (ACd) in monitoring the outcome of behavior.

Processing of temporal information and the basal ganglia: new evidence from fMRI

Abstract. Temporal information processing is a fundamental brain function, which might include central timekeeping mechanisms independent of sensory modality. Psychopharmacological and patient

Conflict monitoring versus selection-for-action in anterior cingulate cortex

Functional magnetic resonance imaging was used to measure brain activation during performance of a task where, for a particular subset of trials, the strength of selection-for-action is inversely related to the degree of response conflict, providing evidence in favour of the conflict-monitoring account of ACC function.

Recalibration of temporal order perception by exposure to audio-visual asynchrony.

The functional neuroanatomy of target detection: an fMRI study of visual and auditory oddball tasks.

The neuronal response patterns that are required for an adequate behavioural reaction to subjectively relevant changes in the environment are commonly studied by means of oddball paradigms, in which

Neural correlates of actual and predicted memory formation

Findings indicate specific dissociations and associations between the neural systems that mediate actual and predicted memory formation.
