Introduction
My interest in human rhythmic behaviour develops along two lines of research. On the one hand, I investigate the behavioural and neural dynamics underlying interpersonal coordination. On the other hand, I am developing methods for quantifying neural entrainment during synchronisation with rhythmic stimuli. In the meantime, I keep up my never-ending study of neural signal processing, statistical modelling, programming in Matlab, R and Arduino.

Article
Full-text available
Across a broad spectrum of interactions, humans exhibit a prominent tendency to synchronize their movements with one another. Traditionally, this phenomenon has been explained from the perspectives of predictive coding or dynamical systems theory. While these theories diverge with respect to whether individuals hold internal models of each other, t...

Background Cerebellar ataxia is a hindering impairment, affecting movement and quality of life. Rehabilitation remains an essential part of management of persons presenting with cerebellar ataxia. Coupling steps to auditory stimuli have been shown to improve gait in neurological disorders such as Parkinson's disease and multiple sclerosis (MS), yet...
Article
Full-text available
Rhythmic joint coordination is ubiquitous in daily-life human activities. In order to coordinate their actions towards shared goals, individuals need to co-regulate their timing and move together at the collective level of behavior. Remarkably, basic forms of coordinated behavior tend to emerge spontaneously as long as two individuals are exposed t...
Article
Full-text available
Researchers have widely studied peripersonal space (the space within reach) in the last 20 years with a focus on its plasticity following the use of tools and, more recently, social interactions. Ensemble music is a sophisticated joint action that is typically explored in its temporal rather than spatial dimensions, even within embodied approaches....
Article
Full-text available
Understanding rhythmic behavior in the context of coupled auditory and motor systems has been of interest to neurological rehabilitation, in particular, to facilitate walking. Recent work based on behavioral measures revealed an entrainment effect of auditory rhythms on motor rhythms. In this study, we propose a method to compute the neural compone...
Article
Full-text available
Motivated by mapping adverse artifactual events caused by body movements in electroencephalographic (EEG) signals, we present a functional independent component analysis based on the spectral decomposition of the kurtosis operator of a smoothed principal component expansion. A discrete roughness penalty is introduced in the orthonormality constrain...

{NOTE: please refer to the peer-reviewed version of this paper, available on my profile as full-text: "Modality-specific attractor dynamics in dyadic entrainment"} Rhythmic joint coordination is ubiquitous in daily-life human activities. In order to coordinate their actions towards shared goals, individuals need to co-regulate their timing and mov...
Article
Full-text available
Embodied music cognition provides a valuable and comprehensive research paradigm within systematic musicology to describe and explain musical sense-making. The basic claim underlying musical embodiment is that subjective meaning, in its broadest sense, is actively constructed within humans’ bodily interaction with music. As such, the empirical stud...
Poster
Full-text available
For decades, IPEM has centred its research program on human interaction with music, developing a theoretical framework known as ‘embodied music cognition’. The theory conceives the interaction with music as bodily mediated and stresses its social nature. For these reasons, the technologies in our Art Science Interaction Lab are meant to provide hig...

Project
We investigate how pathologies such as multiple sclerosis, cerebellar ataxia and dementia impact the human capability of synchronising with environmental rhythms. By applying our methodologies on such neuropathological models, we aim to infer the contributions of cortical and subcortical brain structures to synchronisation behaviour and its underlying neural dynamics.
Project
Our aim is to develop a sound methodology to investigate neural entrainment to auditory rhythms during sensorimotor synchronization. By means of novel signal processing approaches and experimental paradigms, we measure the dynamics of oscillatory components in the electrophysiological signal as they entrain to the environmental rhythms.
Project
By combining the 'drifting metronomes' paradigm for dyadic entrainment (Rosso et al., 2021b) with dual-EEG recordings, we investigate the behavioural and neural dynamics of spontaneous interpersonal synchronization.
