AC postdocs Sarah Tune and Malte Wöstmann have a new paper out online in the special issue on Neural Oscillations in the European Journal of Neuroscience! We are excited to share the results from our first study of the ERC-funded project on listening behavior and adaptive control in middle-aged adults. In this study, we asked whether the fidelity of alpha power lateralization would serve as a neural marker of selective auditory attention in the ageing listener. The results of our multivariate approach demonstrate that understanding inter-individual differences is paramount to understanding of the role of alpha oscillations in auditory attention across age.
