Current research

My research uses behavioural methods and electroencephalography (EEG) to explore the involvement of rhythmic brain activity (a.k.a. neural oscillations) in various forms of cognition. Currently I am working on several experiments looking at the involvement of activity in the alpha and theta bands (8-14 Hz and 4-8 Hz, respectively) in attention, in awareness or unawareness of a stimulus, and in the interaction between attention and awareness.

Research interests

  • Attention

  • Consciousness

  • Neural oscillations
