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

New paper in press in Cere­bral Cor­tex: Wöst­mann et al. on ignor­ing degrad­ed speech

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

New Review Paper out: Wöst­mann, Fiedler & Obleser in Lan­guage, Cog­ni­tion and Neu­ro­science

A review arti­cle for those inter­est­ed in how to use magneto-/electroencephalography (M/EEG) to study speech com­pre­hen­sion. We pro­vide a his­tor­i­cal­ly informed overview over depen­dent mea­sures in the time and fre­quen­cy domain, high­light recent advances result­ing from these mea­sures and review the noto­ri­ous chal­lenges and solu­tions … 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.

Quick inter­view for detektor.fm

Based on Malte’s recent J Neu­rosci study, Jonas did a brief inter­view for Ger­man radio detektor.fm today and talked lis­ten­ing effort, dig­i­tal phone lines, noise reduc­tion, and next-generation hear­ing aids with host Tere­sa Nehm. (In Ger­man only.)
