The real world presents our sensory systems with a continuous stream of undifferentiated information. Segmentation of this stream at event boundaries is necessary for object identification and feature extraction. Here, we investigate the neural dynamics of event segmentation in entire musical symphonies under natural listening conditions. We isolated time-dependent sequences of brain responses in a 10 s window surrounding transitions between movements of symphonic works. A strikingly right… Expand
High-order areas and auditory cortex both represent the high-level event structure of music
TLDR
High-order areas in this study overlap with areas found in previous studies of event perception in movies and audio narratives, including regions in the default mode network, providing converging support for the hypothesis that these regions play a domain-general role in processing stimuli with long-timescale dependencies. Expand
Dynamics of brain activity underlying working memory for music in a naturalistic condition
TLDR
Effective connectivity and agglomerative hierarchical clustering analyses indicate that the hippocampal connectivity is modulated by motif repetitions, showing strong connections with WM-relevant areas, which supports the role of the hippocampus in the encoding of the musical motifs in WM, and may evidence long-term memory (LTM) formation, enabled by the use of a realistic listening condition.

Dissociating the roles of the default-mode, dorsal, and ventral networks in episodic memory retrieval
TLDR
These findings clarify the differential contributions of the default-mode, dorsal, and ventral networks to episodic memory retrieval and also indicate that many episodic retrieval-related activations may actually reflect more general attention/executive operations. Expand
The cortical dynamics underlying effective switching of auditory spatial attention
TLDR
It is shown that the strength of each subject's right temporoparietal junction (RTPJ, part of the ventral network) activation was highly correlated with their behavioral performance in an auditory task and recruitment of the RTPJ likely precedes the right frontal eye fields and middle frontal gyrus by around 100 ms when subjects switch their auditory spatial attention.

Deconstructing the Architecture of Dorsal and Ventral Attention Systems with Dynamic Causal Modeling
TLDR
Findings shed further light on the functional organization of the dorsal and ventral attentional network and support a context-sensitive lateralization in the top-down mediation of attentional orienting and the bottom-up effects of invalid cueing. Expand
Inter‐subject synchronization of brain responses during natural music listening
TLDR
It is found that music synchronizes brain responses across listeners in bilateral auditory midbrain and thalamus, primary auditory and auditory association cortex, right‐lateralized structures in frontal and parietal cortex, and motor planning regions of the brain. Expand
At the heart of the ventral attention system: The right anterior insula
TLDR
The hypothesis that the anterior insula/medial frontal operculum (aI/fO) provides linkage across systems supporting task demands and attention systems is tested by examining the patterns of functional connectivity during word recognition and spatial attention functional imaging tasks. Expand
A critical role for the right fronto-insular cortex in switching between central-executive and default-mode networks
TLDR
FMRI results indicate that the rFIC is likely to play a major role in switching between distinct brain networks across task paradigms and stimulus modalities, and have important implications for a unified view of network mechanisms underlying both exogenous and endogenous cognitive control. Expand
Sensory‐motor brain network connectivity for speech comprehension
TLDR
It is suggested that semantic content modulates the general compactness of network dynamics as well as the balance between frontal and temporal language areas in driving those dynamics. Expand
Construction and Updating of Event Models in Auditory Event Processing
TLDR
The results indicate incremental updating processes at encoding (as measured with reading times) and recognition performance to be unaffected by the amount of change, and are discussed in light of current event cognition theories. Expand

Dynamics of brain activity in motor and frontal cortical areas during music listening: a magnetoencephalographic study
TLDR
The study developed and applied methods to correlate the time course of the regional brain activations with the dynamic aspects of the musical sound, and demonstrated that activity in motor-related structures, specifically in lateral premotor areas, supplementary motor areas, and somatomotor areas correlated with measures of rhythmicity derived from the music.

A neural basis for inference in perceptual ambiguity
TLDR
The findings of functional MRI can be seen as a signature of when and where the brain “makes up its mind” about competing perceptual interpretations of a given sensory input pattern. Expand
Bach Speaks: A Cortical “Language-Network” Serves the Processing of Music
TLDR
The present fMRI-data reveal that the human brain employs this neuronal network also for the processing of musical information, suggesting that the cortical network known to support language processing is less domain-specific than previously believed. Expand
Event perception: a mind-brain perspective.
TLDR
A theory according to which the perception of boundaries between events arises from ongoing perceptual processing and regulates attention and memory is proposed. Expand

TLDR
The outcome points to the implication of inferior frontal cortex in the processing of syntactic relations also for musical material and to its role in theprocessing and integration of sequential information over time. Expand

Musical structure is processed in “language” areas of the brain: a possible role for Brodmann Area 47 in temporal coherence
TLDR
F focal activation in the pars orbitalis region of the left inferior frontal cortex is found, a region that has been previously closely associated with the processing of linguistic structure in spoken and signed language, and its right hemisphere homologue is speculated to be more generally responsible for processing fine-structured stimuli that evolve over time.

The timing and laminar profile of the multisensory interactions in A1 indicate that nonspecific thalamic systems may play a key role in the effect and underscore the instrumental role of neuronal oscillations in cortical operations. Expand

These results provide converging neuroimaging and electrophysiological evidence for top-down attentional modulation of sensory processing by the anterior cingulate cortex and suggest a model of attentional control based on dynamic bottom-up and top- down interactions between the ACC and primary sensory regions.
