How our brain can predict sounds
Perception of sound commences at the auditory system that senses acoustic vibrations from the air or through the bones and transmits the information to the brain via the auditory nerve. The brain interprets the signals as sound, not solely on current sensory information but also considering prior experience. However, the precise neural mechanisms by which the brain exploits information from the recent past to predict and adapt to forthcoming stimuli remains elusive. The EU-funded PriorDynamics project will test the hypothesis that sensory predictions involve specific neural oscillations. Researchers will investigate the oscillations in the auditory cortex and thalamus and determine the mechanism of sensory predictions.
