Dynamic auditory predictions in human and non-human primates

Emanating from the Dynamates consortium, this symposium brings together experts in the field of cognitive neuroscience, cognitive biology and computational modelling to address key questions in predictive auditory processing with a focus on spatial and temporal auditory perception in volatile environments. It will cover purely behavioural approaches as well as combinations with eyetracking, EEG and other neuroimaging modalities. 

Speakers:
- Florent Meyniel (Neurospin, CEA Paris-Saclay, France)
- John van Opstal (Donders Centre for Neuroscience, Netherlands)
- Simone Pika (Institute of Cognitive Science, University of Osnabrück, Germany)
- Barbara Shinn-Cunningham (Carnegie Mellon Neuroscience Institute, USA)
