Für unsere Studien suchen wir interessierte Probanden, die bei uns abwechslungsreiche Höraufgaben bearbeiten und uns dadurch helfen, das menschliche Gehirn besser zu verstehen. Weitere Informationen finden Sie hier.
As a late (to us quite important) result from our lab’s tenure at the the Max Planck in Leipzig, here comes a paper by former AC postdoc Molly Henry with former fellow postdoc AC alumnus Björn Herrmann and our tireless lab manager, Dunja Kunke:
Henry, M.J., Herrmann, B., Kunke, D., Obleser, J. (In press). Aging affects the balance of neural entrainment and top-down neural modulation in the listening brain. Nature Communications. [we will update as soon as the paper is available online.]
New paper in press in Journal of Neural Engineering: Fiedler et al. on in-ear-EEG and the focus of auditory attention
Towards a brain-controlled hearing aid: PhD student Lorenz Fiedler shows how attended and ignored auditory streams are differently represented in the neural responses and how the focus of auditory attention can be extracted from EEG signals recorded at electrodes placed inside the ear-canal and around the ear.
Auditory Cognition’s own Malte Wöstmann is in press in Cerebral Cortex with his latest offering on how attentional control manifests in alpha power changes: Ignoring speech can be beneficial (if comprehending speech potentially detracts from another task), and we here show how this change in listening goals turns around the pattern of alpha-power changes with changing speech degradation. (We will update as the paper becomes available online.)

We are proud to publish our recent study on how network dynamics of beta-band oscillations in the human brain mediate response speed in auditory perceptual decision-making. This work will appear soon in the first volume of the promising journal Network Neuroscience.
