The role of neural oscillations in visual attention & perception

Date & time

4–5pm 6 October 2015




Dr Deborah Apthorp, NHMRC Early Career Research Fellow

We tend to think of our awareness of the world as a continuous stream, without interruptions. But recent evidence suggests that our visual awareness might be more of a pulse than a stream, fluctuating over time in a predictable way. I will discuss recent evidence for this theory from our lab using EEG brain imaging techniques and behavioural experiments such as the Attentional Blink, as well as other evidence of the relationships between oscillatory brain activity and attention and perception.
