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.
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!
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!
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.
Now available online:
Next week we will be presenting some of our latest work at the Neuroscience meeting in San Diego.
Please tag along and check out our posters.
Also, consider checking in at the APAN satellite meeting, on Friday 11, where most of these posters will be presented as well.
