    Lucia Melloni
    Laboratorio de Neurociencias, Escuela de Psicologia, Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile, Vicuña Mackenna 4860, San Joaquin, 8940000 Santiago, Chile
    J Neurosci 27:2858-65. 2007
    ..We propose that the critical process mediating the access to conscious perception is the early transient global increase of phase synchrony of oscillatory activity in the gamma frequency range...
  2. doi request reprint (Micro)Saccades, corollary activity and cortical oscillations
    Lucia Melloni
    Max Planck Institute for Brain Research, Department of Neurophysiology, Deutschordenstrasse 46, 60528 Frankfurt am Main, Germany
    Trends Cogn Sci 13:239-45. 2009
    ..During prolonged fixations, microsaccades could be generated to exploit this mechanism. Studying this interplay between the sensory and the motor system will provide novel insight into the dynamics of natural vision...
  3. doi request reprint Expectations change the signatures and timing of electrophysiological correlates of perceptual awareness
    Lucia Melloni
    Department of Neurophysiology, Goethe University, D 60528 Frankfurt am Main, Germany
    J Neurosci 31:1386-96. 2011
    ..These findings indicate that the latency of the neuronal correlates of access to consciousness depend on whether access is driven by stimulus saliency or by a combination of expectations and sensory evidence...
  4. doi request reprint Local category-specific gamma band responses in the visual cortex do not reflect conscious perception
    Jaan Aru
    Max Planck Institute for Brain Research, 60528 Frankfurt am Main, Germany, Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies, 60438 Frankfurt am Main, Germany, Ernst Strüngmann Institute for Neuroscience in Cooperation with Max Planck Society, 60528 Frankfurt am Main, Germany, Department of Epileptology, University of Bonn, 53105 Bonn, Germany, and German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases, 53175 Bonn, Germany
    J Neurosci 32:14909-14. 2012
    ..This result contradicts the proposal that local gamma band responses in the higher-order visual cortex reflect conscious perception...

    Caspar M Schwiedrzik
    Department of Neurophysiology, Max Planck Institute for Brain Research, Frankfurt am Main, Germany
    J Vis 9:18.1-18. 2009
    ..Thus, subjects can indeed "learn to see."..

    Department of Neurophysiology, Max Planck Institute for Brain Research, 60528 Frankfurt am Main, Germany
    Cereb Cortex 22:2943-52. 2012
    ..Hence, attentional selection is implemented in integrated maps in visual cortex, which provide precise topographic information about target-distractor locations thus allowing for successful visual search...

    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 108:4506-11. 2011
    ..Later, this phenomenon disappears. Subjective awareness is thus neither necessary nor sufficient for achieving above-chance objective performance...
  9. pmc Meditation increases the depth of information processing and improves the allocation of attention in space
    Sara van Leeuwen
    Department of Neurophysiology, Max Planck Institute for Brain Research Frankfurt am Main, Germany
    Front Hum Neurosci 6:133. 2012
    ..Together, these results suggest that practicing meditation enhances the speed with which attention can be allocated and relocated, thus increasing the depth of information processing and reducing response latency...

    Peter J Uhlhaas
    Department of Neurophysiology, Max Planck Institute for Brain Research Frankfurt am Main, Germany

    Conscious Cogn 18:593-9. 2009
    ..Our results support the hypothesis that meditation practice can: (i) alter the efficiency with which attentional resources are distributed and (ii) help to overcome age-related attentional deficits in the temporal domain...
