Description: Frequency tagging has been used to capture auditory entrainment to beat and meter in music. Specifically, Nozaradan, Peretz, Missal and Mouraux (2011) instructed listeners to imagine either a binary or ternary metrical pattern while listening to an isochronous auditory stimulus and recorded cortical responses using electroencephalography (EEG). The amplitude of brain activity was increased at beat-related frequencies in both imagery conditions. This study inspired other labs to use the frequency tagging approach to examine auditory rhythm perception, and in only 6 years, it has been cited over 250 times on Google Scholar. The frequency tagging technique has been used in several published papers since 2011 and it is being used increasingly in research presented at recent research conferences and symposia. However, this seminal study has not been replicated. This registered report will detail the results of multiple independent conceptual replications of Nozaradan et al. (2011), all of which will follow the same vetted protocol.
