TAP lab conducts an auditory oddball experiment using a portable EEG system.
The Timing, Attention, and Perception (TAP) Lab, directed by Dr. J. Devin McAuley, investigates the neural and cognitive bases of timing and rhythm in humans and other animals. Research foci of the lab include (1) coordination of perception and action, (2) attentional entrainment, (3) the role of rhythm in speech and language processing, and (4) commonalities between music and language processing. Research in the lab uses a range of methodologies, including behavioral methods with children and adults, computational modeling, electroencephalography (EEG), transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI).
