Dr. Ingmar Brilmayer: ”Predict, predict, predict: How the brain learns the sensory consequences of its own motor actions“.
For a long period of time, researchers assumed that the brain passively processes sensory input, similar to a computer. However, in the last two decades of research in cognitive and computational neuroscience, researchers have reached a broad consensus that the brain actively creates its own sensations by predicting upcoming sensory input (predictive coding). For this reason, it constantly samples the environment on multiple, hierarchically ordered timescales from milliseconds to several seconds, thereby actively creating a consistent model of its ever-changing environment. Importantly, higher cognitive processing levels (e.g., what is colloquially referred to as 'conscious' levels) located in frontal parts of the brain can exert a strong (top-down) influence on the sensations we experience and the way and efficiency with which we learn. In this talk, I will elaborate on the consequences of the predictive coding framework for learning, producing and perceiving music.
