Auditory sequences of tones were used to examine a form of stimulus-driven attending that involves temporal expectancies and is influenced by stimulus rhythm. Three experiments examined the influence of sequence timing on comparative pitch judgments of two tones (standard, comparison) separated by interpolated pitches. In two of the experiments, interpolated tones were regularly timed, with onset times of comparison tones varied relative to this rhythm. Listeners were most accurate judging the… Expand

TLDR
Both temporal and pitch expectations led to an attenuation of the auditory N1, thus indicating a modulation of early, perceptual processing by temporal and Pitch expectations. Expand
Musical Scales in Tone Sequences Improve Temporal Accuracy
TLDR
Results indicate higher discriminability of anisochrony with musical scales and with longer sequences, irrespective of the knowledge of the final tone, suggesting that the predictability of non-temporal properties, as enabled by the musical scale pattern, can be a factor in determining the sensitivity of time judgments. Expand
Implicit temporal predictability biases slow oscillatory phase in auditory cortex and enhances pitch discrimination sensitivity
Can human listeners use strictly implicit temporal contingencies in auditory input to form temporal predictions, and if so, how are these predictions represented endogenously? To assess thisExpand
The auditory temporal attending theory revisited
Background. The temporal attending theory predicts that tone sequences presented at a regular rhythm entrain attentional oscillations and thereby facilitate the processing of sounds presented inExpand

TLDR
Findings are extended by showing that N1 reflects automatic learning of the predictable higher-order structure of sound sequences, while continuous engagement of preattentive auditory processing is necessary for the unpredictable structure. Expand
Implicit temporal predictability enhances pitch discrimination sensitivity and biases the phase of delta oscillations in auditory cortex
TLDR
It is shown that auditory perception benefits from implicit temporal contingencies, and evidence is provided for a role of slow neural oscillations in the endogenous representation of temporal predictions, in absence of exogenously driven entrainment to rhythmic input. Expand
Temporal Allocation of Visual Attention When What You Hear Influences When You See : Listening to an Auditory Rhythm Influences the
The three experiments reported here demonstrated a cross-modal influence of an auditory rhythm on the temporal allocation of visual attention. In Experiment 1, participants moved their eyes to a testExpand
Implicit temporal predictability enhances pitch discrimination sensitivity and biases the phase of delta oscillations in auditory cortex
TLDR
It is shown that auditory perception benefits from implicit temporal contingencies, and evidence is provided for a role of slow neural oscillations in the endogenous representation of temporal predictions, in absence of exogenously driven entrainment to rhythmic input. Expand
Temporal predictability enhances auditory detection.
TLDR
This is the first study in the auditory domain to clearly demonstrate a perceptual enhancement of temporally predictable, near-threshold stimuli. Expand
Rhythm Facilitates the Detection of Repeating Sound Patterns
TLDR
Pattern detection performance was best when repeated targets occurred in a temporally regular manner, suggesting that temporal regularity plays a facilitative role in pattern detection. Expand

Evidence for rhythmic attention.
TLDR
The magnitude of the captor effect was found to vary with temporal predictability of flanking and/or target tones, and the pairwise rhythm was most likely to improve order judgments by facilitating frequency-based capture. Expand

TLDR
The experiments reported here were carried out to investigate what types of structural relations support the generation of temporal expectancies in the context of a melody recognition task and to discuss the implications for the perceptual processing of musical events. Expand

Various links between musical structure and perceptual and cognitive processes are identified, suggesting psychological influences on how sounds are patterned in music. Expand

TLDR
The hypothesis that abrupt visual onsets capture attention automatically, as suggested by Yantis and Jonides (1984) was tested in four experiments and showed that onsets do not necessarily capture attention in violation of an observer's intentions. Expand

TLDR
The results reveal dynamic neural activity involved in orienting attention to time intervals, as well as the consequent modulation of target-related neural activity resulting from differing temporal expectations. Expand
