Silvy Collin awarded NWO Rubicon

By | Grants, News, Research | No Comments

Silvy Collin has been awarded the Rubicon grant by The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) to continue her scientific career at the Princeton Computational Neuroscience lab lead by Ken Norman. During her postdoc there she wants to investigate how the brain structures continuous, real-life experience with the use of computational modeling, neuroimaging and realistic episodic memory tasks. We wish Silvy all the best for her future!

Memory snapshots: coordination of eye-movements and brain oscillations supports memory encoding

By | Media, News, Research | No Comments
We constantly move our eyes to sample visual information. In order to make the sampling efficient, these eye movements need to be coordinated with the intrinsic brain dynamics that constrain visual computations. Using intracranial EEG and MEG recordings, our new paper in PLOS Biology shows that eye movements are locked to the phase of alpha oscillations, and that this coordination supports mnemonic encoding of visual scenes.
