Four new publications to add to the list! Our professor, Antti Revonsuo, has a new monograph coming in 2018 with the scholarly publisher Routledge, Foundations of Consciousness. According to the blurb, the book “provides an essential introduction to the scientific and philosophical approaches to consciousness for students in psychology, neuroscience, cognitive science, and philosophy.” An […]
A team of researchers including Antti Revonsuo has published an article in the Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience with the title “Different Electrophysiological Correlates of Visual Awareness for Detection and Identification.” In short, the article looks at the electrophysiological differences between conscious detection and conscious higher-level identification of visual stimuli.
A team of researchers including Björn Persson, a BSc- and MSc-alumnus and frequent collaborator with our department, has published an article entitled “Testing construct independence in the Short Dark Triad using Item Response Theory” in Personality and Individual Differences. Briefly, the article investigates the constructs involved in one of the more widely-used short-form Dark Triad […]
Björn Persson, an alumni of both our Consciousness Studies program and our MSc cog neuro program, has – with a team of collaborators – just published an article in Assessment entitled ‘Revisiting the Structure of the Short Dark Triad.’ Briefly, the article (an extension of the topic of Björn’s MSc thesis), critically assesses the Short […]
A team of researchers including our own Katja Valli have published a piece in the open-source Scientific Reports (under the Nature umbrella) entitled ‘Nightmares as predictors of suicide: An extension study including war veterans.’ In short, the study investigated the association between nightmare frequency and suicide risk, finding a positive correlation between the two, even […]
A team of researchers including our own Antti Revonsuo have just published a paper in NeuroImage entitled ‘Early processing in primary visual cortex is necessary for conscious and unconscious vision while late processing is necessary only for conscious vision in neurologically healthy humans.’ Briefly, the study found that activity in the primary visual cortex at […]
A team of researchers including Katja Valli have just published an article in the Journal of Sleep Research, cleverly entitled “Winter is coming: Nightmares and sleep problems during seasonal affective disorder.” Briefly, the research investigates how nightmares, symptoms of insomnia, chronotype and sleep duration associate with seasonal affective disorder (giveaway: significantly in several of the […]
An international team of researchers including Antti Revonsuo have published an article in the European Journal of Neuroscience entitled “Subjective Visual Awareness Emerges Prior to P3.” Briefly, the research looked at differences in the evoked EEG signal between aware and unaware stimuli, in order to map out corresponding event-related potential (ERP) components.
