Title: Neural dynamics of predictive processing: Information in time for sounds and silence: attention, prediction, expectation.

I want to make the case for a specific type of local -at the cortical level-, and informationally specific -in time- processing, when the expected or unexpected stimuli are modulated by attention; and I want to also make the case that the moment attention is modulating the incoming stimuli, the information sharing between cortical networks brings specific feedback cortical processing, neural generalization in time, and wide network interplay. I will draw evidence from EEG, MEG and direct intracranial humans recordings while participants hear a series of sounds patterns that operate at the automatic detection of a difference in the auditory environment, and at a top down/conscious target detection level (all based on the Global-local task). Or put simply, local processing is local in time and space while global processes are distributed and complex and decoupled from the stimuli type and good for general cognitive processing.
