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.

Why do some people always lose their way in a new city, while others have a flawless sense of direction? The answer might have to do with how we sense the world around us. In this episode of the radio show Labyrint, Richard, Bob, Emmy and Henk discuss how their sense of the world sometimes shifts by 90 degrees, while neuroscientists Christian Doeller, Joost Wegman and Tobias Navarro Schröder try to explain this phenomenon.
