Characterizing the mechanism linking brain oscillations and attention performance
Brain oscillations appear to modulate attention periodically over time but what about space? To date, the combined functional role of the temporal and spatial dimensions of brain oscillations is still not fully understood. The EU-funded WAVES project plans to study the mechanisms that link brain oscillations and attention in humans, testing the hypothesis that oscillations travel across the cortex and affect attention performance in space and time. The project will employ multimodal functional neuroimaging methods that include both invasive and non-invasive recordings in humans. By bridging the gap between the spatial and temporal dynamics underlying multisensory experiences, the project's work could lead to significant progress in the fields of cognitive psychology and neuroscience.
