Rhythm perception in children: The roles of age, sex and prematurity
Publication year: 2015
Abstract/Results:
ABSTRACT:
Rhythm and melody are at the basis of music organization. They enable acoustic patterns to be organized in highly structured auditory phrases that can effortlessly be perceived, recognized and comprehended in our mind/brain. Scientific evidence suggests that musical rhythm perception is a complex process that involves more than the auditory cortex, and raises the possibility that rhythm processing is part of a wider mechanism that may also be involved in language production and perception. As such, rhythm perception is more than a component of musicality, and the failure to perceive rhythm might be relevant in domains other than music. In order to better understand the development of rhythm perception, the present study examined agerelated changes in the perception of rhythm while exploring the impact of sex and prematurity. Musical excerpts varying in rhythm only (same note percussion phrases) or in melody and rhythm (rhythmic and rhythmicmelodic sets respectively) were presented to children aged 6 to 13 years (N = 177, of which 21 with gestational age less than 37 weeks; 103 female) and young adults aged 18/19 years (N = 29, 4 with < 37 weeks’ gestational age; 27 female). Participants listened to pairs of musical excerpts (20 stimuli pairs in each set), and indicated whether they sounded the same or different using a grid in a pencil-paper response. In each set, eight pairs were identical and twelve were different (the difference was always in rhythm). The pairs of rhythmic patterns were the same in both sets. The results revealed an age-related progression in accuracy that differed in rhythmic and rhythmic-melodic excerpts: there was a small advantage of rhythm-only pairs that reached adult-like level at 11
years, whereas performance gains in the rhythmic-melodic pairs continued till adulthood. There was no main effect of sex. Prematurity was associated with a performance disadvantage that appeared to decrease with age; however, the small number of subjects precludes drawing firm conclusions on the role of prematurity. We compare our results with findings from earlier studies and discuss how both contribute to elucidate rhythm perception and factors that impact on its development.

Acknowledging the elephant in the room: Empirical insights into the relation between arithmetics and reading fluency
Publication year: 2016

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
How are arithmetic abilities and reading fluency related during childhood? Over a decade after the earliest neurocognitive evidence of a link between language and arithmetics, the relation between both has not yet been fully understood. Recent evidence suggests that mathematics and reading may have similar underlying processes and that some mathematical impairments are more related to a linguistic deficit than to a quantitative one. The current study examined the relation between arithmetic fluency and reading fluency, number sense and working memory in school-aged children (N = 66; 8.3 ± 0.32 years; IQ = 80; 38 female). Arithmetic and reading fluency were measured as the number of arithmetic problems/words correctly solved/read per minute. An approximate number comparison task was used to assess number sense, in which half of the trials were area-controlled to assess whether responses were affected by total dot area instead of by number proper (Panamath test). Working memory was assessed with one visual and two auditory tasks. We found correlations between arithmetic and reading fluency that differed according to this aspect. Arithmetic fluency positively correlated with non-area-related number sense and visual working memory, whereas reading fluency correlated with area-related number sense and auditory working memory. These findings contribute to elucidate the relation between arithmetics and language by disentangling aspects of number sense and working memory that may specifically contribute to arithmetic abilities and reading fluency.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Music and language are outstanding examples of the human ability to make sense out of sound. During the last decades, several studies have suggested a relation of music abilities with early language and reading skills in children. Nevertheless, it remains unclear which aspects of musical abilities might indeed be involved in this presumed relationship. Here we investigated the relation between reading fluency and music processing in school-age children. Our goal was to contrast rhythm and melody aspects in music processing. Our results revealed a positive association between different measures of reading skill (fluency, word identification, and sentence comprehension) with rhythm discrimination, but not with melody discrimination. Though preliminary, these findings are consistent with the notion that rhythm and timing are key mechanisms in music as well as in language.

Resting-state functional connectivity indexes individual differences in emotional prosody recognition in children
Publication year: 2017

http://www.appe.pt/encontro/files/APPE17_ProgramaPosters.pdf
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Resting-state fMRI was used to examine whether functional connectivity patterns predict emotional prosody recognition in children. Fifty-three children (M = 8.30 years; 23 female) completed a resting-state fMRI sequence, and an offline forced-choice recognition task comprising four emotions (happiness, sadness, anger, fear) and neutrality in prosody. Resting-state data were analysed using independent component analysis. A dual regression approach showed that connectivity between left executive network and left superior temporal sulcus predict better emotion recognition performance. Furthermore, the connectivity between these regions and emotion recognition performance were correlated with a behavioural measure of executive functions: the backward digit span (WISC-III). This provides converging network-level and behavioural evidence for a role of executive processes in predicting vocal emotional processing abilities in children.

Can musical abilities predict phonological awareness and reading in young children?
Publication year: 2017
URL:
http://www.appe.pt/encontro/files/APPE17_ProgramaPosters.pdf
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Evidence indicates that musical abilities may impact early language and reading acquisition, but the nature of this relationship remains unclear. We examined the contribution of musical aptitude to phonological awareness (PA) in Grade 1 (n = 72), after controlling working memory (WM) and reasoning; and the contribution of musical aptitude to reading fluency and accuracy in Grade 4 (n = 64), after controlling WM and PA. In Grade 1, musical aptitude contributed to implicit and explicit PA (respectively, R2 change= .13 and .38). In Grade 4, musical aptitude did not contribute to reading fluency and accuracy above and beyond WM and PA. These findings indicate that musical aptitude impacts differentially reading-related skills as reading acquisition proceeds.

Rhythm and sychronization skills in 5- to 6-year old children: The role of cognitive functions
Publication year: 2017
URL:
http://www.appe.pt/encontro/files/APPE17_ProgramaPosters.pdf
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Recent studies indicate that the rhythmic skills of adults are not unitary: rhythm sequencing dissociates from synchronization with a beat, suggesting that different cognitive functions subtend these two skills. We examined the performance of 72 children (6.32 +/- 0.35 years) in rhythm sequencing (discrimination and reproduction) vs. synchronization tasks, as well as in global cognition and auditory working memory tests. Although rhythm sequencing correlated with synchronization, the underlying cognitive functions dissociated: rhythmic sequencing correlated with auditory working memory, while synchronization did not. Our results suggest that working memory demands may subtend the dissociation between rhythmic skills that becomes visible in adulthood.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Sensitivity to rhythm is an important aspect of human development. However, despite growing research on developmental aspects of rhythm, the potential impact of gestational age on rhythm processing remains unexplored. We compared preterm and term children on rhythm perception in music under three conditions of stimulus complexity: rhythmical sequences in unpitched timbres (unpitched), in fixed pitch tones (constant pitch), or in tones of variable pitch (variable pitch contour). Twenty-one preterm children (9.89 ± 2.30 years; 10 girls) were individually matched in age and sex to term children (9.89 ± 2.34; 10 girls) and asked to judge whether the rhythm of a pair of sequences sounded same or different. In the unpitched condition, there were no between-group differences. However, term children performed significantly better than preterm children in the sequences with variable pitch contour (results on fixed pitch were intermediate). These results suggest that prematurity may impact on rhythm processing under more demanding conditions of stimulus complexity.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Using a longitudinal approach, we examined the effects of musical training on reading-related skills, fluid intelligence, executive functioning and numerical cognition of first-grade 6-to-7-year-olds. Children were pre-tested at the onset of the school year, assigned to either musical training, basketball training or control groups, and they were post-tested after 9 months. Compared to the control group, the music group showed stronger enhancements in verbal working memory, phonological awareness, fluid intelligence and executive functioning, while the basketball group only did so for fluid intelligence. Numerical cognition showed no effects of music or basketball training. Our findings highlight the privileged potential of musical training to foster music-unrelated skills in early school-years.

BIAL Foundation Archive
Start date: 1994
History:
The BIAL Foundation was created in 1994 by Laboratórios BIAL in conjunction with the Council of Rectors of Portuguese Universities. BIAL’s Foundation mission is to foster the scientific study of Man from both the physical and spiritual perspectives.
Along the years the BIAL Foundation has developed an important relationship with the scientific community, first in Portugal and after worldwide. Today it is an institution of reference which aims to stimulate new researches that may help people, promote more health and contribute to new milestones to gain access to knowledge.
Among its activities the BIAL Foundation manages the BIAL Award, created in 1984, one of the most important awards in the Health field in Europe. The BIAL Award rewards both the basic and the clinical research distinguishing works of major impact in medical research.
The BIAL Foundation also assigns Scientific Research Scholarships for the study of neurophysiological and mental health in people, arousing the interest of researchers in the areas of Psychophysiology and Parapsychology.
To date the BIAL Foundation has supported 461 projects, more than 1000 researchers, with research groups in twenty-seven countries, resulting, until April 2013, in about 600 full papers, out of which 172 published in indexed international journals with an average impact factor of 3.6 and a substantial number of citations (1665).
Since 1996 the BIAL Foundation organizes the Symposia entitled "Behind and Beyond the Brain", a Forum that gathers well renowned neurosciences speakers and the BIAL Foundation Fellows which are spread around the world.
Classified as an institution of public utility, the BIAL Foundation includes among its patrons the Portuguese President, the Portuguese Universities Rectors' Council and the Portuguese Medical Association.

Title: BIAL Grants
Start date: 1994
History:
In 1994 the BIAL Foundation launched a programme of science research grants with the aim of encouraging the research into Man’s physical and mental processes, namely in fields still largely unexplored but which warrant further scientific analysis, as Psychophysiology and Parapsychology.
Since its launch, applications to the BIAL grants have been increasing. Up to now 461 projects have been supported, involving more than 1000 researchers from 27 countries.
The approved applications have benefited from grants in amounts comprised between €5,000 and €50, 000. The amount to be granted is fixed by the Scientific board according to the needs of each project.
The supported projects have originated, until April 2013, in about 600 full papers, 172 out of which were published in indexed international journals with an average impact factor of 3.6 and a substantial number of citations (1665).
Among the BIAL Foundation fellows is worth highlighting the presence of scientists from prestigious universities from the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Russia, Germany, Japan, France, Canada, and many others.
The BIAL grants are promoted biannually.

Title:
Perceiving rhythmic repetition and change across development: Effects of concurrent pitch
Publication year: 2019

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT
The ability to perceive repetition and change in rhythm is fundamental to music understanding. How is this ability affected by other musical dimensions, such as pitch? We compared the perception of rhythmic repetition and change in rhythm-only stimuli versus rhythm-and-pitch stimuli. A sample of 357 participants, aged from 6 to 22 years, performed Same (repetition) versus Different (change) judgments on rhythmic stimuli with and without concurrent pitch variation. Rhythm-and-pitch stimuli impaired the perception of rhythmic repetition but not the perception of change, and this was independent from participants’ age. Our findings are consistent with two concurrent effects of pitch on rhythmic perception: a change-highlighting effect, acting only in rhythmic change, and a working-memory-overload effect that acts in both repetition and change. We discuss the implications regarding composer–listener communication across development.
