Title:
Wirkmechanismen der zeitlichen Vorbereitung im Kontext der Reizselektion
Duration:
01/04/2018 to 31/03/2021
Abstract / short description:
Selective attention is a fundamental mechanism of the brain that allows selecting only that part of incoming sensory information for deeper processing that is currently relevant and matches the needs and goals of an organism. Recent research work suggests that the efficiency of this selection mechanism depends fundamentally on an organism’s ability to make temporal predictions and thus temporally prepare the brain for sensory information. Yet, it is still unclear how temporal preparation for sensory information exerts its beneficial effect on stimulus selection. The aim of this project is to fill in this gap and to investigate systematically the mechanisms by which temporal preparation facilitates stimulus selection.
