Music temporal dimension plays a critical role for music. It has been reported that the temporal processing in music is affected by many factors. On the one hand, music structural elements influence the temporal processing in music, such as rhythm, meter, tempo, and harmonic accompaniment; on the other hand, individual differences including age, attention, working memory, familiarity, and musical training also affect listeners’ temporal processing in music. Further research should determine the relative importance among these influencing factors, and examine the effects of gene and environment on the temporal processing in music. It should be also needed to identify the sensitive period of the development of temporal processing in music in future.

Keywords temporal processing in music      duration      rhythm      meter      individual differences
