YNiC Seminar: 'Context-dependent representation of auditory time'

Thursday 22 May 2014, 4.00PM to 5.00pm

Speaker(s): Sundeep Teki, UCL

Abstract:

Perception of time is critical for accurate comprehension of natural auditory signals such as speech and music. This talk willpresent a range of behavioural and functional imaging studies supporting the emerging hypothesis that representation of time is highly context-dependent. Specifically, the talk will focus on the role of rhythmic structure of sequences in shaping human perception of time as well as recent work on the representation of temporal information in working memory.
