Cortical Activity During Music Perception

Comparing Musicians and Non-musicians

Musicians devote many hours and extensive effort to their music training, often from an early age. This dissertation research investigates how musical training modifies the way the brain responds to musical events. Using behavioral and event-related brain potential (ERP) measurements, the responses of musicians and non-musicians to irregularities of pitch and rhythm in unfamiliar pairs of melodies based on Western classical rules were recorded. Results indicate that musical training is associated with changes in brain processing involving the detection of both pitch and rhythm irregularities. Behaviorally, musicians detected both types of deviations significantly better than non-musicians. Moreover, musicians did not show ear preference to pitch or rhythm deviations while non-musicians demonstrated left ear advantage to both pitch and rhythm changes. These findings suggest that musicians may engage both hemispheres in response to pitch and rhythm irregularities whereas non-musicians rely preferentially on the right hemisphere for detecting rhythm and pitch deviations. Auditory evoked potentials occurring during the first ~300 ms (N150/P300 in the case of pitch and N100/P200 in the case of rhythm) were also significantly enhanced in amplitude in musicians compared to non-musicians. ERP findings also provided additional evidence for lateralization effects not seen in the behavioral data. The behavioral and brain responses to the same musical irregularities of pitch and rhythm were also assessed in a group of patients. This group consisted of subjects with a hearing disorder, auditory neuropathy (AN), affecting both perception of frequency and temporal cues. The sites of lesions were pre-synaptic in one subject, affecting the synapse between inner hair cell and auditory nerve; and postsynaptic in three subjects, affecting the auditory nerve. The pre-synaptic subject had 14 years of music training and the post-synaptic subjects were untrained. In the post-synaptic subjects perception of both pitch and rhythm irregularities were gravely impaired and no auditory cortical potentials were observed to the deviations. In the pre-synaptic case, perception of pitch and rhythm deviations was intact and amplitudes of evoked potentials to deviations were similar to other musicians. Overall, the results demonstrate that processing of pitch and rhythm is affected by musical training in specific ways providing evidence that long-term music training is associated with cortical plasticity and brain lateralization of musical processing.

Habibi

Der Traum Aus 1001 Nacht

Der Scheineheratgeber: Habibi/Der Traum aus 1001 Nacht ist ein Ratgeber rund um das Thema Scheinehe. Er bietet viele aufschlussreiche Informationen, die einer Frau helfen können, einen Aufenthaltsbetrüger vor einer geplanten Eheschließung zu entlarven.***********************************************************************************************Schwerpunktthema sind deutsch/arabisch/muslimische Beziehungen. Anhand von vielen zahlreichen Fallbeispielen wird gezeigt, wie Aufenthaltsbetrüger vorgehen, um eine Frau zur Aufenthaltsbeschaffung zu finden. Wie Frauen oft in ausweglose Situationen gebracht werden und welche Risiken Scheinehen mit sich bringen, die bewusst von Frauen eingegangen werden, weil sie dringend Geld brauchen oder einem anderen Menschen helfen möchten.***********************************************************************************************Ist es wirklich gerechtfertigt, wenn Männer, die in ihrem eigenen Land verfolgt werden oder keine Lebensgrundlage haben, versuchen, sich ein neues Leben aufzubauen, indem sie in ein anderes Land gehen, dort Frauen Liebe vorheucheln, um sie für eine Aufenthaltsehe zu gewinnen? Sie seelisch zugrunde richten, finanziell ausbeuten und sogar Kinder zu diesem Zweck zeugen?Die Autorin Bettina Lieblich ist der Meinung, mit diesem Missbrauch muss endlich Schluss sein! Es ist zu einer Modeerscheinung geworden, dass wir bei jeder Kritik an Ausländern als Nazis betitelt werden. Dies hat zur Folge, dass Kritik nicht mehr geäußert wird und Missstände sich ungehindert ausbreiten.

Knowledge Capital and the “New Economy”

Firm Size, Performance And Network Production

Finally, we compare cluster dynamics and the institutional setup in Europe and the U.S., with the purpose of identifying regulations that seem to hinder a conducive environment for expanding and dynamic European clusters."--Jacket.

The role of private venture capital is particularly critical within new, knowledge-
intensive industries such as biomedicine/biotechnology, where investments are
often intangible and future potential difficult to assess (Gompers, 1996).

Snowball Sampling

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! In sociology and statistics research, snowball sampling is a technique for developing a research sample where existing study subjects recruit future subjects from among their acquaintances. Thus the sample group appears to grow like a rolling snowball. As the sample builds up, enough data is gathered to be useful for research. This sampling technique is often used in hidden populations which are difficult for researchers to access; example populations would be drug users or prostitutes. As sample members are not selected from a sampling frame, snowball samples are subject to numerous biases. For example, people who have many friends are more likely to be recruited into the sample.
