Research Project

My research focuses on the interaction of oscillations in the Electroencephalogram (EEG) and the precision of items in visual Working Memory (vWM). vWM, the capacity to represent and manipulate visual information that is no longer physically present, is associated with oscillatory activity in the alpha range (~10Hz). In my project, I make use of “Encoding Models for Reconstructing Represented Information (EMRRI)” (also known as “Inverted Encoding Models”). These models can be fitted to EEG data, in order to reconstruct the current state of an information in visual Working Memory. Using behavioral manipulations to change the response precision in a recall task, we are using EEG-based EMRRIs to investigate the change in precision with which an item is stored in vWM.
