The estimation of the stimulus-response correlation constitutes a validated measure of similarity between signals 2. Likewise, the time shift between both signals resulting in maximum correlation is used as an objective estimation of the response onset 2 , 7 , Stimulus and response were maximally positively correlated at time lags of 7.

Stimulus-response correlation. Stimulus onset is shifted in time arrow to account for the time lag resulting in maximal correlation between signals with the aim of maximizing the visual coherence between stimulus and response waveforms.

The evoked responses of monkeys also reflected the spectral features of speech sound by showing phase-locking properties to the F0 as observed in humans. Notably, the response amplitude Fig. The mean amplitude of the grand-added average at the F0 frequency range for human subjects 1. The average amplitude across epochs of humans was of For the monkey group, the F0 and HH average amplitude was of Spectral amplitude of the FFR.

The gray line shows the coherency average of the two macaque values. In both species, a robust neural representation of sound periodicities over time was captured by the FFR. The magnitude of neural activation was estimated by the signal-to-noise ratio SNR , and neural consistency was calculated by the correlation between odd and even subaverages as previously described 44 , The amplitude of monkey monkey Y: 2. The average SNR across epochs indicated a slightly larger neural activation in monkey response 1.

Intrinsic measures of the FFR. Data is shown as a box plot for the human data and as discrete values for monkeys blue: monkey Y; purple, monkey A. The red line within each box represents the median values, the edges of the box delimit the 25 th and 75 th percentiles and the whiskers indicate the 10 th and 90 th percentiles. We found that rhesus monkeys exhibit a homologous human FFR, revealing a shared neural sensitivity to acoustic periodicities. The periodic activity of the monkey FFR reproduces the F0 of the stimulus as observed in human responses, indicating comparable phase-locking abilities to fast temporal information such as subsyllabic cues in both species.

Furthermore, it has been shown that the lemniscal auditory pathway comprising the central nucleus of the inferior colliculus, ventral division of the medial geniculate body together with the core region of the auditory cortex has a strong contribution to the FFR Lemniscal auditory neurons are highly sensitive to the physical features of the sound exhibiting fast and high-fidelity responses which contrast with the habituating responses to unvarying stimuli of the non-lemniscal neurons 51 , 52 , Whether analogous auditory neural structures encode temporal periodicities in the order of milliseconds in both species remains to be addressed.

Regardless, the principles of organization of auditory ascending pathway in which specialized neurons encoding the acoustical properties are tightly interconnected seems to be a general feature across mammals 51 , 52 , Although there are no studies on the response of brainstem and midbrain neurons to periodic sounds in monkey, it has been shown that neurons of the cochlear nucleus 58 and central nucleus of the inferior colliculus 59 of guinea pigs exhibit a similar pattern of periodic activity as synthetic speech sounds.

Overall, animal studies indicate that neurons along the mammalian auditory ascending pathway exhibit a phase-locked patterning of activity that follows the acoustic periodicities in the order of milliseconds. Further intracerebral recordings are needed to determine the contribution of each of the auditory structures on the scalp-recorded monkey FFR, as well as its differences with the human FFR. Monkey FFR exhibits larger peak amplitude and latency Fig. Early 64 and middle latency evoked responses 65 in monkeys also have a larger amplitude than human responses, which could be partially explained by the smaller thickness of the monkey skull and larger ratio between sizes of electrode and neural generators.

The longest latencies of monkey FFR Fig. Although, a second possibility is that longer latencies resulted from larger and more frequent movement artifacts occurring in monkey recordings, since animals were not head-restrained and could move spontaneously. While peak 2 in human average response was small Fig. Thus, it is possible that humans have a larger sensitivity to burst-voice transition or that the analogous neural structures in monkeys elicit a weak response not captured by the scalp recording.

Human and monkey FFR potential. Note the absence of peak 2 and larger amplitude and latencies in monkey FFR. Importantly, a shared capacity to track isochronous regularities in the two primates is indicated by the interpeak intervals and spectra analysis of the sustained features of human and monkey FFR.

Nevertheless, recent studies have shown a gradient in the sensitivity to represent the metrical structure of complex sounds across the primate order 35 , 66 , 67 , 68 , 69 , Accordingly, the gradual audiomotor evolution hypothesis proposes that the meter hierarchy at which primate species can perceive and entrain movements may have developed as a consequence of a gradient of anatomofunctional changes in the auditory and motor systems Further comparative studies are needed to determine the stage at which the structure and function of circuits diverges to account for different meter hierarchy sensitivity.

Similarly, it is of timely interest to study how early encoding of acoustic regularities is exploited and modulated by downstream sensory and motor neural circuits to support perception and production of more complex temporal patterns 69 , 70 , Human studies suggest an overlap between auditory circuits underlying the FFR and higher level neural circuits involved in beat entrainment. It has been observed that subjects that can entrain, with high precision, to an external beat have a larger phase locking and inter-trial consistency of the FFR potential 12 , These observations strongly suggest that the precise representation of the temporal structure of sound occurring at low hierarchical levels are used to plan and align motor outputs in phase to the stimulus 17 , 70 , 73 , Furthermore, top-down signals also sharpen the early processing of temporal regularities, as revealed by the finding that FFR strength is modified by short-term training protocols 23 , 75 and on-line cognitive factors 46 , Non-human primates are able to perceive and respond predictively to isochronous auditory sequences 33 , 36 , 37 and notably, the stimulus-response correlation and the neural consistency of monkey FFR was comparable Fig.

Therefore, the neurophysiological basis of audio-motor entrainment 34 , 36 , 37 , 77 and the associated experience-dependent plasticity of the FFR potential can be studied in the behaving monkey to understand the mechanisms behind the correlation between the extraction of periodic auditory features and precision of synchronization performance observed in humans.

In summary, our findings reveal a conserved neural tracking accuracy for stimulus regularities between human and non-human primates. Thus, the rhesus monkey can be a suitable animal model not only to investigate the neurophysiological basis of the FFR, but also to study the neural mechanisms behind the association between beat entrainment abilities and experience-dependent auditory plasticity.
