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…

New video publication on infant EEG. “Novel Experimental and Analytical Approach to the Multimodal Neural Decoding of Intent During Social Interaction in Freely-behaving Human Infants”

by Stefanie Rudrich Marketing Manager (Brain Products)… A research group from University of Houston presented a novel methodology for the neural decoding of intent from freely-behaving infants during unscripted social interaction with an actor. Neural activity was acquired using actiCAP EEG electrodes. Kinematic data was collected with inertial measurement units and supplemented with synchronized video…
