[UPDATE] New paper in PNAS: Spatiotemporal dynamics of auditory attention synchronize with speech, Woestmann et al.
Wöstmann, Herrmann, Maess and Obleser demonstrate that the hemispheric lateralization of neural alpha oscillations measured in the magnetoencephalogram (MEG) synchronizes with the speech signal and predicts listeners’ speech comprehension. Now available online: http://www.pnas.org/content/early/2016/03/18/1523357113 Press release: https://www.uni-luebeck.de/forschung/aktuelles-zur-forschung/aktuelles-zur-forschung/artikel/aufmerksamkeit-in-wellen-erfolgreich-zuhoeren-im-rhythmus-der-sprache.html
In an invited review in Current Opinion in Behavioral Sciences, Sophie Herbst and Ayelet Landau (The Hebrew University of Jerusalem) discuss the role of spontaneous and stimulus-evoked neural oscillations in temporal processing. Now available online: http://authors.elsevier.com/a/1SZuN8MqMiN8Ar
Can you attentively “highlight” auditory traces in memory? If so, what are potential neural mechanisms of it? Sung-Joo Lim’s paper in J Neurosci; Selective Attention to Auditory Memory Neurally Enhances Perceptual Precision is now available online (full text). Congrats!
Former Obleserlab postdoc Molly Henry with Björn Herrmann and Jonas Obleser has a new publication in press at Journal of Neuroscience. Neural microstates govern perception of auditory input without rhythmic structure by Henry, MJ, Hermann, B, Obleser, J (in press). … Continue reading
[UPDATE] New review paper by Wilsch & Obleser in press: What works in auditory working memory?
AC alumna Anna Wilsch (now University of Oldenburg) has a new review paper in press in a special issue on auditory working memory, curated by Jochen Kaiser (Frankfurt) and Michael Brosch (Magdeburg) in “Brain Research”. We provide a review on … Continue reading
