After plenty of discussion among the examiners, I am pleased to once again be able to announce the winners of the honorary prize for the best Bachelor’s Thesis and the best Master’s Thesis in Cognitive Neuroscience at the University of Skövde for the year 2019! At Bachelor’s level, the prize will – for the first […]
This year we have the pleasure of welcoming not just all our new and returning BSc and MSc students, but also two new faculty, to whom we extend particularly warm greetings: Andreas Kalckert, our new senior lecturer in cognitive neuroscience, is an expert on proprioception, and joins us from a previous position at the University […]
Our MSc alumnus Boushra Dalile (who was here guest lecturing last week) is part of a team of researchers from Belgium who have just had an article published in Nature Reviews Gastroenterology & Hepatology, entitled “The role of short-chain fatty acids in microbiota–gut–brain communication“, which covers, in more depth, the same topic Boushra presented while […]
A team of researchers including Pilleriin Sikka, Antti Revonsuo, and Katja Valli have published an empirical article on EEG frontal alpha asymmtery (FAA) and affective dream content in the prestigious Journal of Neuroscience entitled “EEG Frontal Alpha Asymmetry and Dream Affect: Alpha Oscillations Over the Right Frontal Cortex During REM Sleep and Pre-Sleep Wakefulness Predict […]
A team of researchers including Katja Valli and Antti Revonsuo have just published an article in the APA journal Emotion entitled “Visual features and perceptual context modulate attention towards evolutionarily relevant threatening stimuli: Electrophysiological evidence“.
A team of authors including Antti Revonsuo have published an article on natural vs. urban scenery in the Journal of Environmental Psychology entitled “Processing of natural scenery is associated with lower attentional and cognitive load compared with urban ones“.
Katja Valli is co-editor to a new anthology on dreams from Greenwood, entitled Dreams: Understanding Biology, Psychology, and Culture. The book includes chapters by Katja, Pilleriin Sikka, and Antti Revonsuo, among many others.
A team of researchers, including Professor Antti Revonsuo, have recently published an article in NeuroImage entitled ”V1 activity during feedforward and early feedback processing is necessary for both conscious and unconscious motion perception”. Briefly, the article investigates unconscious motion perception in blindsight patients (with V1 lesions), and equivalent virtual lesions in neurologically healthy subjects using TMS.
