My Honours project investigates how spontaneous neural oscillations affect perceptual performance. Specifically, we’re interested in whether perception of a visual tilt illusion changes with the amplitude and phase of pre-stimulus alpha-band activity (8–12 Hz), as well as with the general balance of neural excitation/inhibition. We hope that this work will enhance our understanding of the mechanisms involved in perception, and further elucidate the alpha-as-inhibition hypothesis.
