- The morphometry of auditory cortex in the congenitally deaf measured using MRIVirginia B Penhune
Concordia University, Department of Psychology, Montreal, Quebec, Canada
Neuroimage 20:1215-25. 2003..Preservation of cortical volume in the deaf suggests plasticity in the input and output of auditory cortex that could include language-specific or more general-purpose information from other sensory modalities...
- Tapping in synchrony to auditory rhythms: effect of temporal structure on behavior and neural activityJoyce L Chen
Montreal Neurological Institute, 3801 University Street, Rm 276, Montreal, QC H3A 2B4

- Moving on time: brain network for auditory-motor synchronization is modulated by rhythm complexity and musical trainingJoyce L Chen
McGill University, 3801 University Street, Montreal, Quebec, Canada
J Cogn Neurosci 20:226-39. 2008..We argue that the superior ability of musicians to deconstruct and organize a rhythm's temporal structure relates to the greater involvement of the prefrontal cortex mediating working memory...
- The effect of early musical training on adult motor performance: evidence for a sensitive period in motor learningVirginia Penhune
Laboratory for Motor Learning and Neural Plasticity, Department of Psychology, SP A 244, Concordia University, 7141 Sherbrooke W, Montreal, QC H4B 1R6, Canada
Ann N Y Acad Sci 1060:265-8. 2005..These results support the idea that there may be a sensitive period in childhood for motor training, similar to that observed for language learning...
- Dynamic cortical and subcortical networks in learning and delayed recall of timed motor sequencesVirginia B Penhune
Department of Psychology, Concordia University, Montreal, Quebec, H4B 1R6 Canada
J Neurosci 22:1397-406. 2002..During late learning, the BG may be involved in automatization. At delayed recall, movement parameters appear to be encoded in a distributed representation mediated by M1, premotor, and parietal cortex...
- Cerebellum and M1 interaction during early learning of timed motor sequencesV B Penhune
Department of Psychology, Concordia University, SP A 244, 7141 Sherbrooke St W, Montreal, Canada QC H4B 1R6
Neuroimage 26:801-12. 2005..Increased activity in M1 later in learning may reflect strengthening of synaptic connections associated with changes in motor maps that are characteristic of learning in both animals and humans...
- The role of auditory cortex in retention of rhythmic patterns as studied in patients with temporal lobe removals including Heschl's gyrusV B Penhune
Neuropsychology and Cognitive Neuroscience Unit, Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital, McGill University, Quebec, Canada
Neuropsychologia 37:315-31. 1999..Taken together, these results point to a specific role for the right anterior secondary auditory cortex in the retention of a precise analogue representation of auditory tonal patterns...
- The effects of practice and delay on motor skill learning and retentionTal Savion-Lemieux
Department of Psychology, Laboratory for Motor Learning, Cognitive Learning, and Neural Plasticity, Concordia University, 7141 Sherbrooke St W, Science Pavilion SP 250, Montreal, Quebec H4B 1R6, Canada
Exp Brain Res 161:423-31. 2005..Second, all groups showed a decrement in percent response asynchrony, suggesting that synchronization may be a more difficult parameter to maintain because it relies heavily on sensorimotor integration...
- When the brain plays music: auditory-motor interactions in music perception and productionRobert J Zatorre
Montreal Neurological Institute, McGill University, 3801 University Street, Montreal, Quebec, Canada
Nat Rev Neurosci 8:547-58. 2007....
- Effects of balance status and age on muscle activation while walking under divided attentionSarah A Fraser
Center for Research in Human Development, Department of Psychology, Concordia University, 7141 Sherbrooke Street West, Montreal, Quebec, H4B 1R6, Canada
J Gerontol B Psychol Sci Soc Sci 62:P171-8. 2007..These results suggest that, during moderately demanding walking and cognitive performance, poor balancers can compensate successfully for their motoric vulnerability...
- The effect of early musical training on adult motor performance: evidence for a sensitive period in motor learningDonald Watanabe
Department of Psychology, SP A 244, Concordia University, 7141 Sherbrooke, West, Montreal, QC, Canada
Exp Brain Res 176:332-40. 2007..These results are also consistent with the results of studies showing structural changes in motor-related regions of the brain in musicians that are specifically related to training early in life...
- Interactions between auditory and dorsal premotor cortex during synchronization to musical rhythmsJoyce L Chen
Montreal Neurological Institute, McGill University, Rm 276, 3801 University St, Montreal, QC, Canada H3A 2B4
Neuroimage 32:1771-81. 2006..Auditory-motor interactions may take place at these regions with the dorsal premotor cortex interfacing sensory cues with temporally organized movement...
- Congenital amusia: a disorder of fine-grained pitch discriminationIsabelle Peretz
Department of Psychology, University of Montreal, C P 6128 Succursale Centre Ville, Montreal, Quebec H3C 3J7, Canada
Neuron 33:185-91. 2002..The data suggest that music-processing difficulties may result from problems in fine-grained discrimination of pitch, much in the same way as many language-processing difficulties arise from deficiencies in auditory temporal resolution...
- Asymmetries of the planum temporale and Heschl's gyrus: relationship to language lateralizationRaquel Dorsaint-Pierre
Neuropsychology and Cognitive Neuroscience Unit, Montreal Neurological Institute, McGill University, Montreal, Quebec, Canada
Brain 129:1164-76. 2006..The findings suggest that this frontal cortical region bears a direct relationship to language lateralization, which may be related to use-dependent plasticity in patients with language reorganization...
- Volume of left Heschl's Gyrus and linguistic pitch learningPatrick C M Wong
The Roxelyn and Richard Pepper Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders, Northwestern University, Evanston, IL 60208, USA
