SNAP Work­shop 2017 — Save the date (08|09 Dec 2017)

After great suc­cess in the past, we are proud to announce a new SNAP Work­shop in 2017. It will take place at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Lübeck in Decem­ber 2017 — save the date!

SNAP will gath­er 12–14 speak­ers and about 50 or so par­tic­i­pants for com­pa­ra­bly exten­sive talks and dis­cus­sions in a two-day event, to be held amongst the pit­toresque sur­round­ings of UNESCO world her­itage city Lübeck (near Ham­burg). A poster ses­sion will be arranged. All details to fol­low.

New project with Gesa Hartwigsen (Max Planck Leipzig): What is Angu­lar Gyrus actu­al­ly up to?

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, on “Mod­u­lat­ing neur­al net­work dynam­ics of speech com­pre­hen­sion: The role of the angu­lar gyrus”. This project will build on Gesa and Jonas’ recent paper in Cor­tex on the top­ic. Thanks again to the fund­ing body and the help­ful review­ers!

New preprint paper: Fiedler et al. on pre­dict­ing focus of atten­tion from in-ear EEG

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!

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 speech and lan­guage researchers are faced with when study­ing elec­tro­phys­i­o­log­i­cal brain respons­es.
