Neural basis of timing prediction
Prediction in timing is one of the most basic activities in everyday life. Two subcortical structures, the basal ganglia and the cerebellum, play roles in temporal processing at different time scales.
This study examines the cerebellar roles for rhythmic timing in the range of several hundred of milliseconds.
Based on the neuraonal and behavioral data from animals and humans, we will suggest computations that the brain likely uses to predict timing.
