• 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 for an online meeting on 15-16 July, 2021!

More @SalzburgL cochlea-madness! Why not use CI electrodes to record hearing nerve activity in cog neuro experiments?

Fantastic work pushed forward by the dream-team @reisipat and twitterless Quirin Gehmacher (together with @mha_khlr aka the #CrazyCochleaBoys). https://twitter.com/reisipat/status/1366470684130607112

First preprint! Quirin Gehmacher and I (shared first authorship, powered by @thht80, Thomas Keintzel, Sebastian Roesch, Konrad Schwarz from @medel & @nweisz2) show that human hearing nerve activity is modulated by selective attention. @SalzburgL @PLUS_1622

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?
