Neuro@Noon, SLU's Neuroscience Journal Club, will meet at noon Thursday, June 2, in the large Pharm/Phys conference room of Schwitalla Hall (southwest corner of the third floor, M360).
Yan Gai, Ph.D., will present a recent paper describing a human's ability to attend to one speaking voice in the presence of several different interfering voices (the 'cocktail party phenomenon'). The paradigms that were developed may be useful to optimize a brain-computer interface that would enable paralyzed patients to communicate or control motorized devices. The article is titled "Phase-shift keying of EEG signals: Application to detect attention in multitalker scenarios."
