  • Abstract
  • apos; interpretation, while event-related potentials (ERPs) revealed a positive shift of the signal in the windows corresponding to N100 and P200 components. Additionally, post hoc analyses of the ERPs time locked to the RC revealed a modulation of the P600 component as a function of gesture. These results suggest that beats modulate early processing of affiliate words in continuous speech and potentially have a global impact at the level of sentence-parsing components. We speculate that beats must be synergistic with auditory prosody to be fully consequential in behavior.
