When we hear music, we often tap our feet, dance together or play and sing together. In order to do this, we need to be able to synchronize our behavior to the regular beat that is often present in music. This seems an easy task, but how do our brains accomplish this? Can everyone do this? And is this specific to humans?

This workshop on beat perception is organised on the occasion of the PhD defense of Fleur Bouwer on June 8. Distinguished international speakers will discuss several aspects of beat perception and prediction. Topics range from the role of the motor system in beat perception, to beat perception in non-human animals and timing and predictions in the human brain.
