Two Distinct Neural Timescales for Predictive Speech Processing

During speech listening, the brain could use contextual predictions to optimize sensory sampling and processing. We asked if such predictive processing is organized dynamically into separate oscillatory timescales. We trained a neural network that …

Imaging of neural oscillations with embedded inferential and group prevalence statistics

Magnetoencephalography and electroencephalography (MEG, EEG) are essential techniques for studying distributed signal dynamics in the human brain. In particular, the functional role of neural oscillations remains to be clarified. For that reason, …

The implicit need for power predicts recognition speed for dynamic changes in facial expressions of emotion

Facial expressions of emotion (FEEs) have been portrayed as potent (dis-) incentives for power-motivated perceivers, because they signal the strength of a sender’s dominance. Here, we tested the hypothesis that individuals with a high implicit power …

Biasing the perception of ambiguous vocal affect: a TMS study on frontal asymmetry.

Several sources of evidence point toward a link between asymmetry of prefrontal brain activity and approach–withdrawal tendencies. Here, we tested the causal nature of this link and examined if the categorization of an ambiguous approach- or …
