Our ability to track multiple objects in a dynamic environment enables us to perform everyday tasks such as driving, playing team sports, and walking in a crowded mall. Despite more than three decades of literature on multiple object tracking (MOT) tasks, the underlying and intertwined neural mechanisms remain poorly understood. Here we looked at the electroen-cephalography (EEG) neural correlates and their changes across the three phases of a 3D-MOT task, namely identification, tracking and…

Neural correlates of multiple object tracking strategies

Delineating the Neural Signatures of Tracking Spatial Position and Working Memory during Attentive Tracking

Results provide evidence that, during attentive tracking, the process of tracking target locations elicits an electrophysiological response that is distinct and dissociable from neural measures of the number of items being attended.

Neural Measures of Individual Differences in Selecting and Tracking Multiple Moving Objects

Electrophysiological measures in humans of the initial selection and sustained attention processes that facilitate attentional tracking are provided and it is observed that the limiting factor underlying tracking capacity can flexibly shift between these two attentional mechanisms depending on the requirements of the task.

Enhancing Cognitive Function Using Perceptual-Cognitive Training

Results indicate that 10 sessions of 3D-MOT training can enhance attention, visual information processing speed, and working memory, and also leads to quantifiable changes in resting-state neuroelectric brain function.

Gamma coherence mediates interhemispheric integration during multiple object tracking.

Results show that gamma coherence mediates interhemispheric integration during MOT, and add to a growing body of work demonstrating that coherence drives communication across cortically distributed neural networks.

Electrophysiological hallmarks of location‐based and object‐based visual multiple objects tracking

Converging evidence shows that our visual system can track multiple visual, independently moving items over time. This is accomplished location‐based by maintaining the individual spatial information

Is the Contralateral Delay Activity (CDA) a robust neural correlate for Visual Working Memory (VWM) tasks? A reproducibility study.

To investigate if the CDA is a robust neural correlate for VWM tasks, eight CDA-related studies are reproduced with a publicly accessible EEG data set and it is shown that with a basic automated EEG pipeline the authors can extract a clear CDA signal.
