This experiment examined the participation of the auditory cortex of the temporal lobe in the perception and retention of rhythmic patterns. Four patient groups were tested on a paradigm contrasting reproduction of auditory and visual rhythms: those with right or left anterior temporal lobe removals which included Heschl's gyrus (HG), the region of primary auditory cortex (RT-A and LT-A); and patients with right or left anterior temporal lobe removals which did not include HG (RT-a and LT-a… Expand
Modelling rhythmic function in a musician post-stroke
TLDR
The data suggested that the functioning of the right temporal auditory cortex is fundamental to 'keeping the beat' in music. Expand
Enhancing Consolidation of a New Temporal Motor Skill by Cerebellar Noninvasive Stimulation.
TLDR
Evidence is provided that cerebellar anodal tDCS can enhance the retention of a fine motor skill and supports the promising approach of using noninvasive brain stimulation techniques to restore impaired motor functions in neurological patients, such after a stroke. Expand
The effects of practice and delay on motor skill learning and retention
TLDR
It is hypothesized that passage of time is essential for a maximum benefit of practice to be gained, as the time delay may allow for consolidation of learning, possibly reflecting plastic changes in motor cortical representations of the skill. Expand
Functional specificity in the right human auditory cortex for perceiving pitch direction.
TLDR
Adaptive psychophysical procedures were used to determine auditory perceptual thresholds in 14 neurologically normal subjects and in 31 patients who had undergone surgical resection from either the right or left temporal lobe for the relief of intractable epilepsy to support a specialization of function linked to right auditory cortical areas for the processing of pitch direction.

Pitch and Rhythm Perception and Verbal Short-Term Memory in Acute Traumatic Brain Injury
TLDR
Pitch and rhythm deficits co-occurred 31% of the time, suggesting partly dissociable networks, and TBI patients had greater impairment than controls, with 43% demonstrating deficits in pitch perception, and 40% in rhythm perception. Expand
Brain Cognition of Musical Features Based on Automatic Acoustic Event Detection
TLDR
Through the in-depth analysis, this method can uncover the cognitive mechanism of the brain for acoustic features, and provide a solid foundation for music computing and composition. Expand
Online Screening of X-System Music Playlists Using an Integrative Wellbeing Model Informed by the Theory of Autopoiesis
TLDR
It is concluded that appropriately curated playlists may be able to lead the listener to positive relaxation or activation states or indeed to positive mood change that may have health benefits. Expand
The chronnectome of musical beat
TLDR
Functional magnetic resonance imaging was used to measure brain responses of participants while they were listening to a piece of music containing strong contrasts in beat salience, and partial dissociation of functional networks belonging to this pathway revealed complementary neural mechanisms crucial in beat inference and maintenance, processes pivotal for extracting and predicting temporal regularities in the authors' environment. Expand
Music training is neuroprotective for verbal cognition in focal epilepsy.
TLDR
The results showed that musicians with an earlier age of onset of music training performed better on a composite score of melodic learning and memory compared to non-musicians, and their implications for clinical practice, music education, and music neuroscience research are discussed. Expand
Previous Musical Experience and Cortical Thickness Relate to the Beneficial Effect of Motor Synchronization on Auditory Function
TLDR
The results suggest that motor synchronization can enhance auditory discrimination abilities through active sensing, but that this beneficial effect can be counteracted by dual-task inference when the two tasks are too challenging. Expand

Lateralization of Speech and Auditory Temporal Processing
TLDR
Evidence is provided that auditory processing of rapid acoustic transitions is lateralized in the human brain from the lowest levels of cortical processing. Expand

TLDR
The view that lesions of the hippocampal formation and adjacent cortical structures can produce global and enduring amnesia and can exacerbate amnesia beyond that seen after more selective hippocampal lesions is reinforced. Expand
Learning and retention of words and designs following excision from medial or lateral temporal-lobe structures
TLDR
It is proposed that excision from either the hippocampal region or temporal neocortex may result in a disconnection, giving a similar functional outcome, as both types of resection interrupt a circuit likely to be essential for normal storage and retrieval of information. Expand
The structural components of music perception. A functional anatomical study.
TLDR
Activations preferentially in the left hemisphere for familiarity, pitch tasks and rhythm, and in the right hemisphere for the timbre task are found, suggesting a role for this cerebral region in the processing of sequential sounds. Expand
Evidence for a two-stage model of spatial working memory processing within the lateral frontal cortex: a positron emission tomography study.
TLDR
P positron emission tomography with magnetic resonance imaging is used to demonstrate the existence of two functionally distinct subdivisions of the lateral frontal cortex, which may subserve different aspects of spatial working memory. Expand
Hearing in the Mind's Ear: A PET Investigation of Musical Imagery and Perception
TLDR
Both perceiving and imagining songs are associated with bilateral neuronal activity in the secondary auditory cortices, suggesting that processes within these regions underlie the phenomenological impression of imagined sounds. Expand
Interhemispheric anatomical differences in human primary auditory cortex: probabilistic mapping and volume measurement from magnetic resonance scans.
TLDR
A preferential role for left PAC in processing temporal aspects of auditory stimuli is suggested and a probabilistic map of the region is produced which can be co-registered with any image of brain structure or function that has been similarly transformed. Expand

Neural mechanisms underlying melodic perception and memory for pitch
TLDR
It is concluded that specialized neural systems in the right superior temporal cortex participate in perceptual analysis of melodies; pitch comparisons are effected via a neural network that includes right prefrontal cortex, but active retention of pitch involves the interaction of right temporal and frontal cortices.
