For those interested in auditory cortex and how a regime of predictions, prediction updates and surprise (a version of “prediction error”) might be implemented there, I contributed a brief featurette (“insight”, they call it) to eLife on a recent paper … Continue reading
[UPDATE] New paper in PNAS: Spatiotemporal dynamics of auditory attention synchronize with speech, Woestmann et al.
Wöstmann, Herrmann, Maess and Obleser demonstrate that the hemispheric lateralization of neural alpha oscillations measured in the magnetoencephalogram (MEG) synchronizes with the speech signal and predicts listeners’ speech comprehension. Now available online: http://www.pnas.org/content/early/2016/03/18/1523357113 Press release: https://www.uni-luebeck.de/forschung/aktuelles-zur-forschung/aktuelles-zur-forschung/artikel/aufmerksamkeit-in-wellen-erfolgreich-zuhoeren-im-rhythmus-der-sprache.html
And again, AC-Alumni Björn Herrmann got a new paper in press / online at NeuroImage on Temporal expectations and neural amplitude fluctuations in auditory cortex interactively influence perception Cheers. References Herrmann B1, Henry MJ2, Haegens S3, Obleser J4. Temporal expectations and neural amplitude … Continue reading
Congratulation to PhD student Malte Wöstmann, who – with Erich Schröger and Jonas Obleser – has a new article in press at the Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience Acoustic detail guides attention allocation in a selective listening task forthcoming. We will … Continue reading
Congratulations to Auditory Cognition’s very own Molly Henry who, with Björn Herrmann and Jonas Obleser, is about to publish yet another PNAS paper: Entrained neural oscillations in multiple frequency bands co-modulate behavior Henry MJ, Herrmann B, & Obleser J. PNAS, in press. … Continue reading
