The Metronom Inside the Brain

Trained musicians are able to reproduce arbitrary rhythms at arbitrary speeds. There must be a metronom-like oscillator in the brain that can be tuned and locked to arbitrary frequencies. Untrained musicians tend to accelerate the speed when reproducing a rhythmic pattern. If the beats of a rhythm are too far apart in time, a "silent beat" is used to help the musician keeping in time.

What is the simplest dynamical model that can reproduce all this features of the human metronom?

What is known about the biological/neurological background of the human metronom?

MOVED TO... Look for literature on this topic (in neurosciences?, Pöppel, Ask Goldbeter (working on biological oscillations, circadian rhythms and the like)).
