• The Salzburg Brain Dynamics Lab is committed to advancing our understanding of how behavior is generated by large-scale brain dynamics. Our team members pursue research on cognitive and clincal neuroscientific questions mainly in the auditory, visual and motor domain and mainly rely on methods allowing to monitor brain activity at high-temporal resolution (MEG, EEG, sEEG). This is flanked by psychophysics and / or neurostimulation, as necessary to address our research questions. Our team, consisting of established as well as junior scientists, is united by a mutual sense of sharing and distributing knowledge.

New preprint by our Postdoc Anne Weise and colleagues: "Increases in parieto-occipital alpha-band power reflect involuntary spatial attention due to a task-distracting deviant sound"
https://doi.org/10.1101/2020.06.29.161992

Guess under which cycle the #MEG resides?

Auditory Neuroscience Group

How can we make sense of our acoustic environment, considering the fact that different sound sources in our complex environments (e.g. the classically cited "cocktail party") often activate the same receptors simultaneously?

Seeing Objects in Rhythms

How many impressions can our brain hold in mind at any moment? How long lasts one moment? And do we see and think in a continuous flow or in discrete steps?

Neurocognition & Distraction

Can distraction result in a shift of spatial attention? Does involuntary spatial attention (inevitably) engages visual processing? And can oscillatory alpha activity be seen as a neural signature of involuntary spatial attention?
