Ahren's paper "Musical Meter Modulates the Allocation of Attention across Time" will appear in the December issue of Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience. This is the first research to show different early perceptual processing of physically identical sounds at different levels of a metric hierarchy. Ahren wrote short melodies that directed temporal attention to downbeats. This important demonstration of the influence of rhythmic structure on the allocation of selective attention gives us an inkling of the complex patterns of temporal attention that must arise when listening to music and speech.
