Abstract  Temporal preparation and impulsivity are sharing two common cognitive processes: time perception and response inhibition. Rhythmic synchronization can be regarded as a specific paradigm of temporal preparation. The major purpose of the present study is to examine the relationship between rhythmic synchronization and response inhibition. Results indicated a significant correlation between rhythmic synchronization and response inhibition. Number of years of formal music training was not significantly correlated with rhythmic synchronization. No relationship was found between response inhibition and general intelligence. Regression analysis revealed that number of commission errors was the best predictor for rhythmic synchronization, followed by reaction time of interference. Time perception is anticipatory in nature and should be better examined with a proactive stopping paradigm. Response style was not found to have a statistical significant role in the present study. Further research may further examine the clinical effectiveness of rhythmic synchronization on alleviating impulsivity via its effect on response inhibition. proactive stopping paradigm. Response style was not found to have a statistical significant role in the present study. Further research may further examine the clinical effectiveness of rhythmic synchronization on alleviating impulsivity via its effect on response inhibition.
