• 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.

  • The Salzburg Mind/Brain Annual Meeting (SAMBA) will be back in its 4th edition in 2020! The mission of SAMBA is to attract the most exciting researchers in the domain of cognitive neuroscience, including related fields (e.g., computational modelling, 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.

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?
