An international team of researchers including Kristoffer Fehér, alumnus of both our BSc (Consciousness Studies) and MSc programs, has recently published an article in Frontiers in Human Neuroscience entitled “Phase-Dependent Modulation of Signal Transmission in Cortical Networks through tACS-Induced Neural Oscillations“. Briefly, the article presents work on concurrent tACS, TMS and EEG (!), as a […]
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 […]
I intend to post an announcement about the best Cog Neuro theses of the year shortly, but this post will contain the last set of links to topic-relevant stories and PhD positions for the summer, with a resumption of normal activity around the middle of August. So, on the the links: Simon Oxenham on lucid […]
