  • CNS 2019 – Posters

    We will be presenting our works at Poster Session F, Tue (26 Mar), 8-10am, at the 2019 CNS meeting in San Francisco. Go see Anne for Auditory and visual speech perception is predicted by distinct cortical encoding networks [F60]: And stop by at [F130] for Christian’s Spontaneous fluctuations of pupil size and brain rhythms co-vary… Read more

  • Alpha rhythms: Some slow down, some grow stronger

    Alpha rhythms: Some slow down, some grow stronger

    Researchers usually assume alpha brain waves to behave relatively similarly over time. In a new study, led by Chris Benwell and just accepted for publication in NeuroImage, we find that this is not necessarily true for the 1-2 hrs that a typical EEG experiment lasts. In a re-analysis of data from two previous EEG experiments… Read more

  • Anne to join University of Dundee Psychology

    Anne to join University of Dundee Psychology

    [1 Jan 2019] Anne has taken up a position of Lecturer of Psychology at the University of Dundee. With the beginning of January 2019 she joins the staff at the Psychology Division at the school of Social Sciences. There, she will continue her research into auditory cognition, with a focus on language and speech perception… Read more

  • Flicker-driven brain waves and alpha rhythms

    [17 Feb 2019] Our manuscript Stimulus-driven brain rhythms within the alpha band: The attentional-modulation conundrum has just been accepted for publication in the Journal of Neuroscience. We show that stimulus-driven and intrinsic brain rhythms in the ~10 Hz range (alpha) can be functionally segregated. Briefly put, while one goes up the other one goes down.… Read more

  • Anne wins Biomag 2018 Young Investigator Award

    [28 Aug 2018] Anne has been one of three Early Career Researchers rewarded with a BIOMAG Young Investigator Award at the 2018 International Conference on Biomagnetism, held in Philadelphia, USA. Nominated as one of 10 finalists she won the award for a presentation of her recent work into the neural foundations of speech comprehension [1].… Read more

  • New preprint on speech tracking in auditory and motor cortices

    The tracking of temporal information in speech is frequently used to study speech encoding in dynamic brain activity. Often, studies use traditional, generic frequency bands in their analysis (for example delta [1 – 4 Hz] or theta [4 – 8 Hz] bands). However, there are large inter-individual differences in speech rate. For example, audiobooks are… Read more
