Workshop on the Auditory Frequency-Following Response (FFR)

The frequency-following response (FFR) recorded from the human scalp using electroencephalography (EEG) is thought to reflect the basic neural representation of periodic sound on which higher-level processing of language and music is based.

It has being extensively used in basic and clinical research, as it provides a measure of phase locking to a periodic stimulus, allowing non-invasive study of basic sound processing in the human auditory brain. However, the precise neural origins of the FFR are still debated, as well as the interpretation of the results obtained with it. In order to stimulate auditory research in this growing field, we intend to provide a gentle introduction to the FFR as a research technique, give a methodological overview, and present current and future directions. There will also be dedicated time for scientific discussion and knowledge exchange among CRBLM members and the community in general.

13:00 – 13:15    Introduction
13:15  – 14:00   Welcome to the wonderful world of the FFR – Alexandre Lehmann
14:00 – 15:00   FFR Methods: pre-processing and analysis – Héctor Orozco Pérez
