Here, we show that human participants use implicit modulations of temporal hazard, the probability of an item to occur at a certain moment in time given it has not yet occurred, when performing a pitch discrimination task. Using an encoding model approach allows us to isolate the tracking of temporal hazard by the time domain EEG signal, notably by the supplementary motor area, a region known for its implication in timing.
