We tested with MEG whether perceptual grouping affects the processing of sound omission in a tone sequence. Omission in a random tone sequence, compared to a regular tone sequence, elicited larger brain responses in both musicians and nonmusicians. However, the cortical activation pattern differed between them. This indicates that, depending on musical experience, different cortical areas might be implicated in the perceptual grouping of tone sequences.
