- New insights into rhythmic brain activity from TMS-EEG studiesGregor Thut
Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging, Department of Psychology, 58 Hillhead Street, Glasgow G12 8QB, UK
Trends Cogn Sci 13:182-9. 2009..Here, we review findings from this rapidly evolving field linking intrinsic brain oscillations to distinct sensory, motor and cognitive operations. The findings emphasize that brain rhythms are causally implicated in cognitive functions...
- A review of combined TMS-EEG studies to characterize lasting effects of repetitive TMS and assess their usefulness in cognitive and clinical neuroscienceGregor Thut
Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging, Department of Psychology, University of Glasgow, UK
Brain Topogr 22:219-32. 2010..Newly emerging developments in offline TMS research for cognitive neuroscience and neurotherapeutics are outlined...
- Sounds reset rhythms of visual cortex and corresponding human visual perceptionVincenzo Romei
Institute of Neuroscience and Psychology, University of Glasgow, 58 Hillhead Street, Glasgow G12 8QB, UK
Curr Biol 22:807-13. 2012....
- The functional importance of rhythmic activity in the brainGregor Thut
Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging CCNi, Institute of Neuroscience and Psychology, University of Glasgow, Glasgow, UK
Curr Biol 22:R658-63. 2012..Such findings establish a causal relationship between brain oscillations and behaviour, and are allowing novel tests of longstanding models about the functions of brain oscillations...
- Stimulus- and state-dependence of systematic bias in spatial attention: additive effects of stimulus-size and time-on-taskChristopher S Y Benwell
Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging, Institute of Neuroscience and Psychology, University of Glasgow, Glasgow, United Kingdom
Cortex 49:827-36. 2013..They are best captured by theories of spatial attention positing that spatial bias is flexibly modulated, and subject to inter-hemispheric balance which can change over time or conditions to accommodate task demands or reflect fatigue...
- Formation of automatic letter-colour associations in non-synaesthetes through likelihood manipulation of letter-colour pairingsFlor Kusnir
School of Psychology, College of Science and Engineering, University of Glasgow, UK
Neuropsychologia 50:3641-52. 2012..Although not evoking conscious colour percepts, these learned, synaesthesia-like associations in non-synaesthetes support that common mechanisms may underlie letter-colour associations in synaesthetes and non-synaesthetes...
- Causal implication by rhythmic transcranial magnetic stimulation of alpha frequency in feature-based local vs. global attentionVincenzo Romei
Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging at UCL, Institute of Neurology, University College London, London, UK
Eur J Neurosci 35:968-74. 2012..These dissociations confirm differential roles of the two hemispheres in local vs. global processing, and reveal a frequency-specific role for stimulation in the alpha band for regulating feature-based visual attention...
- Rhythmic TMS causes local entrainment of natural oscillatory signaturesGregor Thut
Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging, Institute of Neuroscience and Psychology, University of Glasgow, Glasgow G12 8QB, UK
Curr Biol 21:1176-85. 2011..Here, we provide the first direct evidence for causal entrainment of brain oscillations by transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) using concurrent EEG...
- Entrainment of perceptually relevant brain oscillations by non-invasive rhythmic stimulation of the human brainGregor Thut
Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging, Institute of Neuroscience and Psychology, University of Glasgow Glasgow, UK
Front Psychol 2:170. 2011..This indicates that human brain oscillations and function may be promoted in a controlled way by focal entrainment, with great potential for probing into brain oscillations and their causal role...
