Beat induction (BI) is the cognitive skill that allows us to hear a regular pulse in music to which we can then synchronize. Perceiving this regularity in music allows us to dance and make music together. As such, it can be considered a fundamental musical trait that, arguably, played a decisive role in the origins of music. Furthermore, BI might be considered a spontaneously developing, domain‐specific, and species‐specific skill. Although both learning and perception/action coupling were… 
What do we need to hear a beat? The influence of attention, musical abilities, and accents on the perception of metrical rhythm
In this dissertation, I examine beat perception, the process that allows us to make music together. I explore the effects of attention, musical abilities, and accents on beat perception.
The Impact of Instrument-Specific Musical Training on Rhythm Perception and Production
TLDR
The results suggest that general musical experience is more important than specialized musical experience with regards to perception and production of rhythms.
Neural processing of musical meter in musicians and non-musicians
TLDR
It is argued that musicians maintain a more accurate and efficient mental model for metrical structures, which incorporates occasional disruptions using significantly fewer neural resources, suggesting higher processing efficiency.
Does Training Enhance Entraining? Musical Ability and Neural Signatures of Beat Perception
TLDR
Electroencephalography was used to examine the magnitude of neuronal entrainment to beat and meter in individuals with high or low levels of music training, suggesting that music training may not influenceBeat and meter perception at the level of neural networks and thatEntrainment could be innate.
Behavioral Dynamics of Rhythm and Meter Perception: The Effect of Musical Expertise in Deviance Detection
In two behavioral experiments, we explored effects of long-term musical training on the implicit processing of temporal structures (rhythm, non-rhythm and meter), manipulating deviance detection
Rhythmic Regularity Revisited: Is Beat Induction Indeed Pre-attentive?
When listening to musical rhythm, regularity in time is often perceived in the form of a beat or pulse. External rhythmic events can give rise to the perception of a beat, through a process known as
Rhythmic regularity revisited: Is beat induction indeed pre-attentive?
When listening to musical rhythm, regularity in time is often perceived in the form of a beat or pulse. External rhythmic events can give rise to the perception of a beat, through a process known as
Poor Synchronization to Musical Beat Generalizes to Speech†
TLDR
The hypothesis that individuals who display a severe deficit in synchronizing their taps to a musical beat would also experience difficulties entraining to speech is tested and the findings support the idea that acoustic periodicity is a major factor in domain-general entrainment to both music and speech.
Rhythmic complexity and predictive coding: a novel approach to modeling rhythm and meter perception in music
TLDR
It is argued that musical rhythm exploits the brain’s general principles of prediction and proposed that pleasure and desire for sensorimotor synchronization from musical rhythm may be a result of such mechanisms.
Without it no music: cognition, biology and evolution of musicality
TLDR
A multicomponent perspective on musicality that emphasizes its constituent capacities, development and neural cognitive specificity is an excellent starting point for a research programme aimed at illuminating the origins and evolution of musical behaviour as an autonomous trait.

Newborn infants detect the beat in music
TLDR
It is shown that newborn infants develop expectation for the onset of rhythmic cycles (the downbeat), even when it is not marked by stress or other distinguishing spectral features, which strongly support the view that beat perception is innate.

TLDR
It is concluded that, in addition to their role in movement production, the basal ganglia and SMAs may mediate beat perception.
Rhythmic engagement with music in infancy
TLDR
The results show that infants engage in significantly more rhythmic movement to music and other rhythmically regular sounds than to speech, and infants exhibit tempo flexibility to some extent, suggestive of a predisposition for rhythmicmovement in response toMusic and other metrically regularSounds.
Structure and interpretation of rhythm and timing
Rhythm, as it is performed and perceived, is only sparingly addressed in music theory. Existing theories of rhythmic structure are often restricted to music as notated in a score, and as a result are

Feeling the Beat: Movement Influences Infant Rhythm Perception
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the perception of musical rhythm is a multisensory experience in infancy, in particular, movement of the body, by bouncing on every second versus every third beat of an ambiguous auditory rhythm pattern, influences whether that auditory rhythm patterns are encoded in duple form or in triple form.
Infants use meter to categorize rhythms and melodies: Implications for musical structure learning
TLDR
Results indicate that infants can infer meter from rhythmic patterns, and that they may use this metrical structure to bootstrap their knowledge acquisition in music learning.
The quest for universals in temporal processing in music.
TLDR
This paper reviews rhythm perception and production studies carried out with adult musicians, adult nonmusicians, children, and infants in order to identify temporal processes that appear to function in a similar fashion irrespective of age, acculturation, and musical training, and submit five temporal processes as candidates for the status of "temporal universals".

TLDR
It is shown that the combination of psychological, medical, physiological, genetic, phylogenetic, hunter-gatherer, and cross-cultural evidence indicates that musicality is a cognitive adaptation.
Infant music perception: Domain-general or domain-specific mechanisms?
TLDR
It is concluded that infants' music perception skills are a product of general perceptual mechanisms that are neither music- nor species-specific, and unique motivational mechanisms that can account for the perpetuation of musical behavior in all human societies are suggested.
