Test–retest reliability of neural entrainment of the human auditory system

Brain rhythms synchronize with the rhythms in sounds with a phase lag that is consistent across trials within an experiment, but not necessarily consistent across people.  Individual differences in this phase lag of neural entrainment have the potential to be interesting predictors of individual differences in listening performance (Henry & Obleser, 2012), and as such may serve as a target for noninvasive brain stimulation techniques. This project aims to establish the reliability of this phase lag across time, and to localize the neural sites of reliable entrainment in space, as first steps towards noninvasively targeting entrainment to sound rhythms.
