The role of preferred brain states in perceptual and cognitive processing: New insights into brain dynamics

Grant

  • Discovery Projects

Abstract


  • The aim is to verify and extend recent insights into the brain dynamics involved in cognition and perception. My recent work on EEG activity at stimulus onset has demonstrated â¬Spreferredâ¬ý brain states ⬠particular phases of very narrow EEG bands occur substantially more often than expected by chance. These preferred states have been shown to facilitate stimulus processing. Existing data collected for other purposes will be re-examined using the innovative data-processing techniques developed in my research. After replicating, extending and optimising aspects of the data processing in normal groups, its utility will be tested by investigating brain dynamics in populations expected to demonstrate very different variants in brain dynamics.
