I am interested in how cognition is implemented in the human brain - with a particular focus on the role of attention in perception and (working) memory. In my current research, I employ Magnetoencephalography (a non-invasive brain imaging methodology) in healthy human volunteers to study the role of preparatory brain states (as reflected in the phase and amplitude of neural oscillations) from early sensory brain areas in governing selective access to working memory. This builds on my previous research demonstrating functional relevance of such preparatory brain states for perception.
