Electrophysiological indices of graded attentional and decision-making processes

Abstract:

In everyday life we regularly update our expectations about the locations at which sensory events may occur, and about the motor responses that are appropriate in a given situation. The experiments in this thesis investigated the neural correlates of perceptual processes and motor preparation during human decision making, and the regions that causally contribute to decision making in the human brain. In Chapter 3, I used electroencephalography (EEG) to investigate whether alpha-band (~8-14 Hz...
