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”!
