Santa struck early this year: The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) has just granted AC head Jonas (University of Lübeck) and brain-stimulation wiz Gesa Hartwigsen (now a group leader at AC’s former institution, the MPI in Leipzig) a joint 3-year grant, worth 371,000 € in total, … Continue reading
Very proud: PhD student Lorenz Fiedler goes live (pre-peer-review) with his work of predicting the focus of attention in single-channel/forward models in in-ear EEG! Here is the preprint of the paper, which now will undergo peer-review. Thanks for checking it out!
Our newest member of the lab, post-doc Sarah Tune, just published a review article in the Journal of Neuroscience. The article appeared in the “Journal Club” section, where graduate students or post-docs are given the chance to write short review … Continue reading
[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
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!
