Music, rhythm and the brain

The topic of my research is how musical rhythm entrains the human brain activity.

During my PhD, I developed a frequency-tagging approach to capture the brain mechanisms supporting musical rhythm processing.

Currently, I use this approach as a mean to investigate neural mechanisms of entrainment in auditory perception and body movementsensorimotor synchronization and multisensory integration. To this aim, I record the online brain activity with surface or intracerebral electroencephalography (EEG) as coupled with body movement, auditory or audiovisual stimulations.

Also, this research gives rise to some thoughts about how and why mixing art and science in research activities.
