The causal role of neocortical beta events in human sensory perception

Beta rhythms (15-29 Hz) are one of the most dominant brain signals measured non-invasively in humans with magento- and electro-encephalography (MEG/EEG). They are strong predictors of perception and motor performance, and disrupted in disease states, such as Parkinson’s Disease. Yet, beta’s causal role in function is still unknown.

Led by Professor Stephanie Jones, this project combines human EEG, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and biophysically principled neural modeling to investigate a direct causal relationship between beta and perception and to define novel TMS paradigms that optimally impact perception.
