CRBLM Introductory Workshop: MRI data analysis using Independent Component Analysis

Publié par: le 7 décembre 2016 | Pas de commentaire

The most common method of analysis of fMRI data consists in comparing the BOLD signal in the brain with time series representing the various conditions of the experiment (e.g. task vs rest). Similarly, resting-state data is often analyzed by selecting a region of interest, computing the average BOLD signal in that region, and comparing it with signal elsewhere in the brain.

Pupillary responses index music-induced arousal

Abstract:

Music-induced emotions are conveyed by a variety of acoustical cues and are associated with measurable psychophysiological changes. In this talk, I will present three related studies, all using the same set of musical excerpts, which link music-induced emotions, acoustical features, and pupillary responses.

Detection of auditory regularities: success and failure

Expertise is acquired by a gradual replacement of on-line computations with scheme-based memory retrieval. This is the case for both simple perceptual and complex cognitive tasks. However, such a training-based replacement requires acquisition of the task-relevant regularities.
