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 clinical 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.
The Centre for Cognitive Neuroscience (CCNS) at the University of Salzburg organizes an annual meeting in the field of Cognitive Neuroscience, the so-called Salzburg Mind-Brain Annual Meeting (SAMBA). The mission of SAMBA is to attract the most exciting researchers in the domain of cognitive neuroscience, including related fields (e.g., computational modeling, animal neurophysiology, neurology etc.) that influence or are influenced by developments in cognitive neuroscience. Furthermore, our goal is to make young scientists enthusiastic about this research field. The moderate size of an anticipated ~100 to 150 participants will enable an intimate atmosphere with ample opportunity for exchange. SAMBA will be back in 2022, stay tuned!
Danke an die >600 Teilnehmer*innen im Land Salzburg unserer online Hörstudie! Schon mal ein guter Start 🙂
Freuen uns über weitere Teilnehmer*innen und Weiterempfehlungen (an Freunde, Familie, Kolleg*innen etc.). @PLUS_1622 @LandSalzburg
@chanleonhaider cleverly using MEG for speech reconstruction to show which acoustic / linguistic are affected by a speaker wearing a face mask 😷. Funded by special SARS-COV-2 program of the @FWF_at.
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?Read More
