Visual Grids in MEG

By | Media, News, Research | No Comments
Our new study is out in Current Biology. Staudigl et al. show grid-like modulation of human high frequency activity in non-invasive magnetoencephalographic and intracranial EEG recordings. The results indicate that the human entorhinal cortex codes visual space in a grid-like manner, supporting the view that grid-coding generalizes beyond environmental mapping during locomotion.

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.
