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 … Continue reading
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 … Continue reading
Story time: Some time in early 2011, I sat down with an American, fresh PhD graduate who had just joined my new lab, in a Leipzig bar (Café Cantona; if you are interested you can find this great 24⁄7 bar … Continue reading
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!
