Investigating the role of neural oscillations in temporal and spatial integration

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The project’s overall objective is to understand the construction of the perception of objects and events in space and time. Within this broad framework the fellow will focus on investigating the neural oscillations in temporal integration and in changes in spatial reference frames. S/he will use EEG/MEG, eye tracking and behavioral methods.The fellow’s specific tasks will be designing and implementing experiments using natural scenes, movies and simple auditory, visual or tactile stimuli and carrying out advanced analysis of eye tracking and EEG/MEG data. In addition the fellow is expected to collaborate with other members of the CoPeST team in on-going behavioural and neuroimaging studies.
