נושא המחקר: Perceptual rhythms in visual awareness
שם המנחה: ד"ר איילת לנדאו
תקציר המחקר: Recently, it was found that attention oscillates rhythmically, alternating between moments in which the input processing is more efficient and moments in which it is less efficient. The systems-level implication of these oscillations is that perception is not a continuous event, but is rather subject to the cyclic changes
of the networks processing the input. The aim of my project is to investigate whether the rhythmic oscillation performed by attention intervenes in unaware (suppressed) perceptual processes. This experimental effort may contribute
drastically to the unveiling of the interaction between attention and awareness and to understand better the origin of this rhythmic dynamic that affect the internal computation of our sensory inputs.
תקציר ביוגרפי: I am a PhD students in Dr. Ayelet N. Landau’s Brain, Attention & Time Lab. My research focuses on the relationship between brain oscillations and perception across the visual hierarchy. My aim is to understand the origin of neural rhythmic dynamics that affect the internal computation of our sensory inputs. I adopt behavioral and electrophysiological experiments to evaluate the evolution of perceptual capabilities of human subjects across time. My background in neuro-engineering, allows me to integrate these results
with simulated output from neural computational models.
