Despite the ubiquitous nature of the alpha rhythm (oscillations in the range of 8-12 Hz) in the brain, the functional role of cortical alpha oscillations remains a matter of debate. Synchronization in the alpha band was long considered to represent a state of cortical inactivity. However, this assumption has been challenged by studies showing an increase in alpha synchronization for task modulated changes of spatial attention and during cognitively demanding memory processes. My interest is to understand how alpha oscillations are involved in memory processes, particularly in the short-term memory range, and I investigate this topic by combining electrophysiological (EEG) and modelling approaches.
