Abstract: Coordinating one’s behaviors with that of another individual is fundamental to successful social interaction. In most instances, such interaction is effortless and efficient, even when we are faced with highly variable and often unpredictable behavioral events. Key to achieving such coordination and cooperation is being able to predict or anticipate the behaviors of other individuals. Research investigating the mechanisms that support behavioral anticipation has traditionally focused on hypotheses formulated to explain how the human nervous system compensates for the temporal delays that occur between the production of a movement and the perception of its outcome (i.e., feedback).

Dissertation Defense, Blair Kaneshiro: Toward an Objective Neurophysiological Measure of Musical Engagement
Engaging listeners is an inherent goal of music. The concept of 'musical engagement', however, carries multiple connotations and remains difficult to quantify or even define. In particular, an objective measure of musical engagement is lacking.
