New paper in press at eNeuro: Herbst, Fiedler and Obleser on tracking temporal hazard in the human EEG
Here, we show that human participants use implicit modulations of temporal hazard, the probability of an item to occur at a certain moment in time given it has not yet occurred, when performing a pitch discrimination task. Using an encoding model approach allows us to isolate the tracking of temporal hazard by the time domain EEG signal, notably by the supplementary motor area, a region known for its implication in timing.
