Neural and Environmental Rhythms lab
The "Neural and Environmental Rhythms" lab explores how synchrony between brain rhythms and environmental rhythms shapes our perception of the world. We use psychophysics, M/EEG, and noninvasive brain stimulation to do this.
We're based at the Max Planck Institute for Empirical Aesthetics in Frankfurt and at Toronto Metropolitan University (formerly Ryerson) in Toronto.
Welcome to Sophie Herbst! Sophie is visiting us from Paris to give a talk about her work.
Welcome to Nicolás Hinrichs and Gladys Heng! Nico and Gladys are visiting the group for a few weeks to work on some projects and learn some new skills.
New paper out! Yuranny Cabral-Calderin again, with a technically impressive demonstration that we can modulate neural entrainment to sound rhythms with transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS), but the size of the effect depends on getting current to the right spot. You can read about that here.
