UPDATE — The Volcano ash that Island is kindly supplying might prevent us from getting to Montréal. Let’s see whether we make it until the poster session starts on Sunday. But I am slightly pessimistic on that.
I am currently quite busy with finishing off loads of old data and preparing new adventures in auditory neuroscience. Stay tuned for more!
Meanwhile, if you have a few-hours stop-over in Montréal, Canada next week: Why don’t you come and find us at the Annual Meeting of the Cognitive Neuroscience Society.
I will present a collaborative effort with old Konstanz acquaintance Dr. Nathan Weisz on brain oscillatory measures in degraded speech—a field I feel very strongly about currently and which will surely keep me busy for years to come:
Poster D 53 — Spectral features of speech drive the induced EEG brain response: Parametric changes in Alpha- and Theta-band power
Also, our student Lars Meyer will present a neat fMRI study we recently ran on really nasty (yet perfectly legal) German syntax and how the brain deals with it under as-nasty (poor, that is) acoustics:
Poster I31 — When Complex Grammar Must Pass the Bottleneck of Degraded Acoustics: an fMRI Study.
See you in Montréal!
