Because of attentional limitations, the human visual system can process for awareness and response only a fraction of the input received. Lesion and functional imaging studies have identified frontal, temporal, and parietal areas as playing a major role in the attentional control of visual processing, but very little is known about how these areas interact(More)
Everyday human behaviour relies on our ability to predict outcomes on the basis of moment by moment information. Long-range neural phase synchronization has been hypothesized as a mechanism by which 'predictions' can exert an effect on the processing of incoming sensory events. Using magnetoencephalography (MEG) we have studied the relationship between the(More)
The ability to adapt to environmental changes is based on the impressive capacity of the central nervous system for plasticity changes. A better understanding of the requirements of neuroplasticity will help to apprehend and predict the success of sensory prostheses. To investigate neuroplastic changes associated with (1) blindfolding and (2) the use of a(More)
