  1. 1. Exploring the Neural Correlates of Auditory Awareness

    University essay from Stockholms universitet/Psykologiska institutionen

    Author : Billy Gerdfeldter; [2018]
    Keywords : consciousness; awareness; audition; event-related potential; auditory awareness negativity; AAN;

    Abstract : Neural correlates of consciousness (NCCs) represent the physiological processes related to consciousness and awareness. Consciousness is theorized as a recurrent process of integration between separate but specialized brain areas. READ MORE

  2. 2. Volitional and strategic retrieval-orientation adoption in reality monitoring: an ERP study

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för psykologi

    Author : Nils Nyberg; [2016]
    Keywords : recognition memory; retrieval orientation; reality monitoring; event-related potentials; multinomial processing tree models; Social Sciences;

    Abstract : Retrieval orientations refer to cognitive states that, if adopted, tonically orients episodic retrieval attempts towards the sought-after type of information. Such orientations can enhance episodic retrieval by modulating the processing and effectiveness of retrieval cues. READ MORE

  3. 3. BRAIN ACTIVITY EFFECTS OF AWARENESS FOR EVOLUTIONARILY THREATENING STIMULI INVESTIGATING THE SNAKE DECTECTION HYPOTHESIS : INVESTIGATING THE SNAKE DETECTION HYPOTHESIS

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för psykologi

    Author : Simone Grassini; [2016]
    Keywords : Evolution; ERP; EPN; Snake Detection Hipothesis;

    Abstract : Snakes are probably the best example of evolutionarily life-threatening stimulus as they have been one of the first predators of primates and mammals in general. In recent years, it has been shown that snake images produce specific behavioral and electrophysiological reactions in humans, provoking enhanced brain activity over the occipital cortex compared with pictures of other animals.

  4. 4. Is Visual Stimuli Neighboring Attended Stimuli Suppressedin High Perceptual Load? : A Steady State Evoked Potential Study

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Institutionen för datavetenskap

    Author : Linn Bergström; [2016]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Perceptual load theory, together with the surround-suppression model suggest that stimulus surrounding attended stimuli is suppressed, especially if perceptual load is high. This study attempts to map surround-suppression using electroencephalography to measure neural activity related to suppression at four surrounding locations (2°, 3°, 4° and 6° from fixation).

  5. 5. Qualitative differences in L3 learners' neurophysiological response to L1 versus L2 transfer

    University essay from Stockholms universitet/Institutionen för lingvistik

    Author : Alejandra Keidel Fernández; [2016]
    Keywords : EEG; Language acquisition; Morphosyntax; TLA; grammar; P300;

    Abstract : In the present study, the influence of morphosyntactic aspects of L1 and L2 on L3 comprehension is investigated using ERP (Event-Related Brain Potentials). The study examines the processing of verb and gender agreement incongruences in Spanish by native Swedish speakers that are fluent in English and learning Spanish, in comparison to a control group of native Spanish speakers.
