New paper in press: Henry, Her­rmann, & Obleser in PNAS

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Audi­tory Cognition’s very own Molly Henry who, with Björn Her­rmann and Jonas Obleser, is about to pub­lish yet another PNAS paper:

Henry MJ, Her­rmann B, & Obleser J. “Entrained neural oscil­la­tions in mul­ti­ple fre­quency bands co-modulate behav­ior”. PNAS, in press.

We are very excited about this one, as it harks back to Molly’s 2012 PNAS paper yet ups the ante some­what: How do neural oscil­la­tions behave towards a more real­is­ti­cally com­plex mix­ture of acoustic reg­u­lar­i­ties, and how does lis­ten­ing behav­iour change as a func­tion of var­i­ous neural entrained phases?

read a short sum­mary here…

Stay tuned until after PNAS embargo has been lifted!

[UPDATE]

PNAS paper is online. Check it out here.

New paper in press: Hartwigsen, Golombek, & Obleser in Cortex

In a col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Uni­ver­sity Clinic of Leipzig and Prof Dr Gesa Hartwigsen (now Uni­ver­sity of Kiel), a new paper is to appear in “Cor­tex”, in the forth­com­ing spe­cial issue on Pre­dic­tion in Speech and Lan­guage, edited by Alessan­dro Tavano and AC alum­nus Math­ias Scharinger.

Hartwigsen G, Golombek T, & Obleser J. “Repet­i­tive tran­scra­nial mag­netic stim­u­la­tion over left angu­lar gyrus mod­u­lates the pre­dictabil­ity gain in degraded speech com­pre­hen­sion”. Cor­tex (in press)

Hooray for Dr. des. Julia Erb …

… the first PhD stu­dent from the Audi­tory Cog­ni­tion group, started in Jan­u­ary 2011, to defend her PhD (Dr. rer. nat.) thesis.

Julia pre­sented her work last thurs­day to the defense com­mit­tee, and will now move on to a great Post­doc posi­tion – it seems she will have a hard choice between two great options.

Thank you Julia for the great sci­ence and the great fun you brought to the lab! And thanks to the exter­nal exam­iner as well as to Erich Schröger and all com­mit­tee mem­bers at the Uni­ver­sity of Leipzig, who kindly col­lab­o­rate on grad­u­at­ing our students.

 

We wish you all the best
