Congratulations to just-graduated former AC PhD student and fresh GIPSA/Grenoble Postdoc Antje Strauß, who today had the last data set from her PhD thesis accepted as a paper in The Journal of Neuroscience. We are all very happy!
The paper is entitled “Alpha phase determines successful lexical decision in noise” and contains arguably the first data set to extend principles of (alpha, 8–12 Hz) pre-stimulus phase dependence from low-level psychophysics to more complex language or cognitive processes, here: lexical decision.
A big hello to AC friend and colleague Niko Busch, by the way, whose bifurcation index measure served our purposes very well here!
We will update accordingly, but meanwhile, here is the abstract and my favourite figure from the paper.
