Predispositions and Plasticity in Auditory-Motor Learning: Hemispheric Asymmetries

The lab of Robert Zatorre has focused on music as a powerful model for understanding plasticity in a human cognitive neuroscience context. This talk will present evidence that musical training modifies auditory and motor networks, and their functional and anatomical relationships, and that important asymmetries exist across the two hemispheres in these systems. Zatorre will also discuss evidence that individual differences in learning are related to functional features that may serve as predictors of later learning success. The goal of his lab is to develop a better model of how the large-scale organization and asymmetries of auditory-motor networks relate to the experience-dependent plasticity that underlies complex skills such as playing a musical instrument, which may also have implications for speech.
