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 […]
After something of a lull in posting (busy times in cogneuro-land), here are some recent updates: How better to establish that your theory has gone mainstream than it being featured in the SMBC webcomic?! Kristoffer Ekman talks New Year’s resolutions with local media (in Swedish only). One of our BSc program students talks exercise and […]
Two new local media pieces (both in Swedish only, unfortunately). One covering the use of psychedelic narcotics in clinical research, the other detailing collaboration with Estonian entrepreneurs seeking to develop a device for improving sleep.
Max Planck Institute PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience (note the extremely short deadline!) Berlin School of Mind and Brain/Humboldt University International PhD Fellowships Bremen International Graduate School of Social Sciences PhD positions (bit of a long-shot, but not impossible for somebody with the right interest)
A local newspaper, Skövde Nyheter, has published a short profile piece (in Swedish only) on the dream research of our very own Pilleriin Sikka. Another local newspaper, Falköpings Tidning, has also published a profile piece (again in Swedish only) on the recent Seasonal Affective Disorder research of our very own Katja Valli.
We are implementing a new, student-focused healthy competition field to the website sidebar (to the right on a desktop/laptop, below the main text on a mobile/tablet): a Skövde-specific leaderboard for highest all-time scores on EyeWire (a crowd-sourced science application helping researchers trace individual neurons from histological samples)! The rules are simple: if you have a […]
In an attempt to ease the pre-summer link verbiage, we’ve now adopted new functionality that changes how we promote relevant and interesting links. Instead of putting them into various forms of individual or combined posts, the most relevant sources have been collected in two fields in the sidebar to the right of the main text […]
