List Publishes Perceptual, Attentional States Research
Assistant Professor of Psychology Alexandra List was the co-author of an article published in late April by the multidisciplinary open access journal PLOS ONE.
“Pattern classification of EEG signals reveals perceptual and attentional states” presented the results of a study using pattern classification techniques that are widely used to differentiate neural activity associated with different perceptual, attentional or other cognitive states.
The aims of the study were to “replicate and extend prior EEG applications of pattern-classification analyses toward decoding perceptual states” and “to investigate whether spatiotemporal EEG signals could reliably predict attentional states, and particularly, the scope of attention.”
List’s co-authors were Monica Rosenberg of Yale University, Aleksandra Sherman of Occidental College and Michael Esterman of Boston University School of Medicine and VA Boston Healthcare System.
