Mesoscopic computational imaging of the predictive listening human brain

Project description

How expectations shape the human brain

Our brain is a complex organ that is capable of processing relevant sound from the acoustic content of sounds using extensive feedback (FB). The findings of current studies suggest FB provides flexibility to auditory perception. However, limitations in coverage and spatial resolution of non-invasive imaging methods have hindered the mapping of contextual sound processing into the fundamental computational units of the human brain. The EU-funded PrAud project will use ultra-high-field (UHF) functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to study the way expectations form the human brain. The project will reveal the neurobiological mechanisms supporting hearing to determine how aberrant contextual processing occurs in phantom hearing (tinnitus and auditory hallucinations).
