Entrainment of Neuronal Oscillations as a Mechanism of Attentional Selection
TLDR
It is shown that when attended stimuli are in a rhythmic stream, delta-band oscillations in the primary visual cortex entrain to the rhythm of the stream, resulting in increased response gain for task-relevant events and decreased reaction times. Expand
Low-frequency neuronal oscillations as instruments of sensory selection
TLDR
The evidence for early sensory selection by oscillatory phase-amplitude modulations, its mechanisms and its perceptual and behavioral consequences are reviewed. Expand
An oscillatory hierarchy controlling neuronal excitability and stimulus processing in the auditory cortex.
TLDR
It is proposed that the hierarchical organization of ambient oscillatory activity allows auditory cortex to structure its temporal activity pattern so as to optimize the processing of rhythmic inputs. Expand
Multisensory auditory-visual interactions during early sensory processing in humans: a high-density electrical mapping study.
TLDR
This study examined the timing and topography of cortical auditory-visual interactions using high-density event-related potentials (ERPs) during a simple reaction-time (RT) task, providing compelling evidence that auditory- visual neural interactions give rise to this RT effect. Expand
Neuronal Oscillations and Multisensory Interaction in Primary Auditory Cortex
TLDR
The timing and laminar profile of the multisensory interactions in A1 indicate that nonspecific thalamic systems may play a key role in the effect and underscore the instrumental role of neuronal oscillations in cortical operations. Expand
Is neocortex essentially multisensory?
TLDR
The notion that neocortical operations are essentially multisensory is examined, which forces us to abandon the notion that the senses ever operate independently during real-world cognition. Expand
Mechanisms Underlying Selective Neuronal Tracking of Attended Speech at a “Cocktail Party”
TLDR
It is found that brain activity dynamically tracks speech streams using both low-frequency phase and high-frequency amplitude fluctuations and that optimal encoding likely combines the two. Expand
Grabbing your ear: rapid auditory-somatosensory multisensory interactions in low-level sensory cortices are not constrained by stimulus alignment.
TLDR
Psychophysical and electrophysiological indices are used to show that auditory-somatosensory interactions in humans occur via the same early sensory mechanism both when stimuli are in and out of spatial register, and across wide peripersonal spatial separations remarkably early in sensory processing and in cortical regions traditionally considered unisensory. Expand
A spatiotemporal profile of visual system activation revealed by current source density analysis in the awake macaque.
TLDR
System-wide, response latencies indicated a large dorsal/ventral stream latency advantage, which generalizes across a wide range of methods and predicts a specific temporal ordering of dorsal and ventral stream components of visual analysis, as well as specific patterns of dorsal-ventralStream interaction. Expand
The Spectrotemporal Filter Mechanism of Auditory Selective Attention
TLDR
The data suggest that selective attention generates a dynamically evolving model of attended auditory stimulus streams in the form of modulatory subthreshold oscillations across tonotopically organized neuronal ensembles in A1 that enhances the representation of attended stimuli. Expand
