Welcome Paul Smith, our newest research assistant!
A new paper by René and Niko, in collaboration with Laura Dugué, is published in the European Journal of Neuroscience:
Distinct contributions of alpha and theta rhythms to perceptual and attentional sampling
A preprint of the project investigating the replicability of EEG-studies, which Niko is a part of, is now live: click here for #EEGManyLabs
Nico and Niko publish another paper: The effect of intrinsic image memorability on recollection and familiarity
Niko and Luca Ronconi publish a new paper together with David Melcher, Markus Junghöfer and Carsten Wolters. Congratulations!
Link: Testing the effect of tACS over parietal cortex in modulating endogenous alpha rhythm and temporal integration windows in visual perception
Renè and Niko submit a new paper together with Laura Dugué. The preprint:
Theta rhythmic attentional enhancement of alpha rhythmic perceptual sampling
After a long break, we finally started collecting data in our lab again!

Welcome as our newest PhD student, Elio Balestrieri!
Congrats to Niko and Luca Iemi! They published a new paper (Moment-to-moment fluctuations in neural excitability bias subjective perception
rather than decision making) in eNeurounder.
