The habitual playing of video games is associated with increased grey matter and activity in the striatum. Studies in humans and rodents have shown an inverse relationship between grey matter in the striatum and hippocampus. We investigated whether action video game playing is also associated with increased use of response learning strategies during(More)
We tracked the deployment of visual spatial attention, as indexed by an electrophysiological event-related potential named the N-2-posterior-contralateral (N2pc). We expected that a stronger and/or earlier deployment of attention would predict faster responses in a visual search task. We tested this hypothesis by sorting the electrophysiological segments(More)
When the frequency of one harmonic, in a sound composed of many harmonics, is briefly mistuned and then returned to the 'in-tune' frequency and phase, observers report hearing this harmonic as a separate tone long after the brief period of mistuning - a phenomenon called harmonic enhancement. Here, we examined the consequence of harmonic enhancement on(More)
