Everyday experience may arise from a fundamentally discrete sampling of
our sensory environment, just like a movie consists of still frames
shown in rapid succession. Over the last decade, brain rhythms have been
proposed as the neural implementation of perceptual sampling and as the
basis of cognitive functions such as attention, memory and language. In
an interesting twist however, more recent negative findings on the role
of pre-stimulus oscillatory phase on perception suggest that support for
discrete sampling as a fundamental mechanism remains equivocal.
In our Special Issue, we call for methodologically principled studies,
irrespective of their outcome, to provide us with the most detailed
picture to-date as to the conditions under which perceptual sampling,
and its consequences for cognition, can (not) be observed. These studies
can be original contributions, replication attempts, pre-registered
studies or file-drawer experiments that have to follow a thorough
methodology and thus allow clear interpretations also of negative
findings. We further welcome dedicated reviews, opinion pieces and
methodological advances. Studies can address perceptual sampling in
vision, audition or other senses by testing its impact on
neuro-physiological or behavioural performance measures (psychophysics).
Authors are encouraged to make their data openly accessible along with
their experimental and analysis codes in order to foster reproducibility
and transparency. We invite human studies adopting neuroimaging (EEG,
iEEG, MEG, fMRI) and neurostimulation techniques (tES, TMS, sensory
entrainment). Animal studies will be a highly welcome supplement.
We are very much looking forward to your submissions to our EJN Special
Issue “Rhythms in Cognition: Revisiting the Evidence”!
