Consciousness and attention examined with lateralized EEG measures-van der Lubbe / Vosslamber; 2 MA students

Supervisors: Dr. Rob van der Lubbe, Suzanne Vosslamber, MSc

Results of recent BA-projects revealed that differences in individual abilities to either or not detect a masked stimulus, which is an indication of visual awareness, may be related with attentional abilities. Namely, by using the LPS method (Van der Lubbe & Utzerath, 2013), we observed stronger lateralized EEG activity for participants that were better in detecting masked stimuli. In the current project, this approach will be complemented by using psychophysical methods to assess individual differences in detection thresholds and relate them with lateralized EEG measures like the LPS and ERL methods.
