First Steps to Using Carbon Wire Loops to Correct for Artifacts in simultaneous EEG-fMRI

by Lars Hausfeld, PhD Department of Cognitive Neuroscience, Maastricht University, Maastricht Brain Imaging Centre (M-BIC) The Netherlands Abstract The simultaneous acquisition of EEG and fMRI signals promises linked datasets with high temporal and spatial resolution, respectively. To make optimal use of the data from this advanced acquisition scheme, the attenuation of artifacts in EEG signals…

The Power of mind: Blocking visual perception by hypnosis

by Dr. Barbara Schmidt Biological and Clinical Psychology University of Jena Jena, Germany Abstract In our recently published study (www.nature.com/articles/s41598-017-05195-2), we show that a blocking suggestion given under hypnosis has significant impact on visual perception and underlying brain responses measured via EEG. Introduction Past research has shown that suggestions during hypnosis can have a deep…
