  1. Rhythmic Pattern and Timing: Categorization (cf. page 375). This link to a web-based demonstration allows one to explore the experimental data and results of a study on rhythmic categorization (Desain & Honing, 2003). At the bottom of the demo the various experimental conditions are indicated. The ternary plot (cf. page 373) shows the responses for the different stimuli. When you click on a point in the map the corresponding stimulus is shown at the right-hand side. You can play the stimulus and click on the response label to see the subjects responses in music notation.
  1. Beat induction as a Fundamental Cognitive Skill (cf. page 382). This link provides additional information on the study with newborns on beat induction (Winkler et al., 2009)
  1. Tempo and Timing: Perceptual Invariance (cf. page 383). This link is an example of a listening experiment to study the relation between tempo and timing (e.g., Honing & Ladinig, 2006).
  1. Interview (2002). This link refers to a subtitled video on rhythm perception and beat induction as an important topic for cognitive science.
  1. TED Talk (2012). This link refers to a TEDx talk with the title 'What makes us musical animals', suggesting beat induction to be a fundamental musical skill.
