Alex Brandmeyer: Auditory perceptual learning using decoded-EEG neurofeedback | CCRMA: "Auditory perceptual learning is a process in which skills of auditory perception improve through both passive and active exposure to sounds in the environment, and which underlies our abilities to perceive language and music. Individual differences in these perceptual skills can be observed in both our behaviors and in our brains’ automatic responses to sounds (i.e. auditory evoked responses). The results of these experiments suggest that,depending on stimulus features and participant instructions, the presentation of such feedback can lead to the modulation of distinct components of the auditory event-related potential. The ability to selectively modulate brain activity underlying ongoing perception via neurofeedback could eventually lead to a novel type of brain-computer interface for learning paradigms involving both healthy and clinical populations.
