Understanding how neural oscillatory phase affects perception and attention (2022–2024)

The project examines rhythmic 'waves' in human brain activity, with the aims of determining the mechanisms behind their involvement in attention and visual perception, and of differentiating the types of rhythmic activity involved in different aspects of attention. The project will generate new knowledge, and benefit cognitive neuroscience in Australia, by characterising the fundamental rhythmic nature of visual perception. In addition to resolving existing scientific controversies, the outcomes of this project include the creation of a large, public repository of behavioural and neural data, and the generation of new knowledge to guide development of cognitive enhancement strategies for attentionally demanding, real-world scenarios.
