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.
🚨Job alert 🚨 3-year postdoc position in our new @FWF_at project on "Selective Neural Entrainment & Dynamic Attention in Infants" @univienna is now officially advertised: https://univis.univie.ac.at/ausschreibungstellensuche/flow/bew_ausschreibung-flow;jsessionid=AFF29F772D76AAAE5F7964246D5E9049?_flowExecutionKey=_c5CBDD7E7-3754-32B0-532E-E59C58B9CA7A_kF276A810-FCDF-B02D-DBD3-2BDC673B2DDA&tid=82935.28&_language=en
Did you ever look at your old experiment code and had no clue what it does?
Now out in @FrontPsychol, @nweisz2 and me (@SalzburgL) present the "Objective Psychophysics Toolbox" (o_ptb) that lets you write clean and intuitive code for you next experiment!
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?
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?
