Abstract:
It has been demonstrated that during working memory tasks heathy human participants usually demonstrate a clear increase in amplitude at slow brain frequencies (e.g. at theta rhythm) measured via EEG. In this talk I will suggest that the phase of slow brain activity, i.e. the exact temporal evolution of waves, are of particular importance for working memory processses.This suggestion will be backed-up with results from transcranial alternating current stimulation, EEG and combined EEG and transcranial magnetic brain stimulation studies.
