Ciclo di Seminari del Dipartimento di Psicologia - ''Neuroimaging Studies of Binocular Rivalry: How the brain ‘changes its mind"

Prof. Janine Mendola, Dept. of Ophthalmology & Visual Sciences, McGill University

Lunedì 1 luglio 2024, ore 14.00
Sala Lauree Psicologia, U6 (3° piano)

I will discuss human fMRI and MEG studies of binocular rivalry including some recent work on individual differences. Alternations between bistable percepts  provide a powerful platform to study visual awareness and suppression. The frequency tagging technique is used to record whole brain SSVEPs with analyses of power, coherence, and connectivity. In untagged data, we explore the role of alpha band signals in perceptual stabilization. One theme is comparison of well matched binocular states such as different types of rivalry. Another theme is the non-invasive measurement of interocular inhibition which may be a partially heritable trait. There is also the possibility to discuss potential relationships to binocular vision disorders such as amblyopia.

Tutti gli interessati sono invitati a partecipare.
