Driving Under the Influence: How Music Listening Affects Driving Behaviors Jordan Navarro1,2, François Osiurak1,2, Vivien Gaujoux1, Marie Claude Ouimet3, Emanuelle Reynaud1 1Laboratoire d'Etude des Mécanismes Cognitifs (EA 3082), University Lyon 2, 2Institut Universitaire de France, 3Faculté de médecine et des sciences de la santé, Université de Sherbrooke Here, we present a protocol to assess driving behaviors while following a vehicle in a simulated driving environment. The presented protocol is used to compare the impact of different auditory backgrounds on driving behaviors.
Uncovering Beat Deafness: Detecting Rhythm Disorders with Synchronized Finger Tapping and Perceptual Timing Tasks Simone Dalla Bella1,2,3,4, Jakub Sowiński3 1Movement to Health Laboratory (EuroMov), University of Montpellier, 2Institut Universitaire de France, 3Department of Cognitive Psychology, University of Finance and Management in Warsaw, 4International Laboratory for Brain, Music, and Sound Research (BRAMS) Behavioral tasks that allow for the assessment of perceptual and sensorimotor timing abilities in the general population (i.e., non-musicians) are presented.
