Studying music processing - with comparisons and integrations to language processing - provides insights in how the brain processes complex sound structures, notably in learning, perception and memory. Our research aims to understand how implicit knowledge of non-verbal sound structures is acquired and how cognitive representations influence sound processing in context (i.e., via expectations) For this aim, we combine behavioral (e.g.,musical priming paradigm), neurophysiological and computational approaches and study healthy and patient populations. We have shown that musical structures are processed implicitly by nonmusician listeners. The involved neural correlates revealed the role of inferior frontal cortex for domain-general, temporal and structural integration, rather than supporting language-specificity. This has now motivated further research investigating how musical structures and rhythmic-metric regularities can boost learning and memory as well as language processing. We are also using the rare opportunity provided by congenital amusia (a music-specific processing deficit) to study non-verbal vs. verbal processing as well as the power of implicit cognition.
