Alpha oscillations

Transcranial alternating current stimulation at 10 Hz modulates response bias in the Somatic Signal Detection Task

Ongoing, pre-stimulus oscillatory activity in the 8–13 Hz alpha range has been shown to correlate with both true and false reports of peri-threshold somatosensory stimuli. However, to directly test the role of such oscillatory activity in behaviour, …

Pre-stimulus alpha oscillations over somatosensory cortex predict tactile misperceptions

Fluctuations of pre-stimulus oscillatory activity in the somatosensory alpha band (8–14 Hz) observed using human EEG and MEG have been shown to influence the detection of supra- and peri-threshold somatosensory stimuli. However, some reports of touch …
