Auditory brainscapes or neural soundscapes? A multi-scale exploration of oscillatory brain dynamics during auditory perception

Abstract: Rhythmic brain dynamics operating across a variety of frequencies and brain areas play an important role in a wide-range of cognitive processes, including auditory perception. There is ample evidence suggesting that neuronal oscillations are involved in auditory encoding of various types of auditory stimuli ranging from pure tones to more complex sounds, music and speech. Critically, converging evidence suggests that large-scale oscillatory networks play a key role in auditory cognition, and that dysfunctional communication underlies a variety of related disorders. In this talk I will discuss the role of brain oscillations and high-frequency gamma activity in encoding/representing auditory stimuli in a range of experiments including microelectrode recordings in rat auditory cortex, MEG recordings during speech perception and real-time intracranial EEG experiments during complex auditory perception. Ongoing research and future perspectives will be discussed.
