LabMeeting LOBI

Dear Colleagues,

we would like to invite you to an upcoming LabMeeting of Laboratory of Brain Imaging (LOBI) on Monday 3rd of February 2020 at 2:00 PM (room 1, first floor).
Michał Bola, PhD from LOBI will give the lecture entitled:
„The role of attention in processing of emotional and semantically incongruent natural scenes”
Visual objects are typically perceived as parts of an entire visual scene and the scene’s context provides information crucial in the object recognition process. Fundamental insights into the mechanisms of context-object integration have come from research on semantically incongruent objects, which are defined as objects with a very low probability of occuring in a given context. However, the role of attention in processing of the context-object mismatch remains unclear, with some studies providing evidence in favour, but other against an automatic capture of attention by incongruent objects. In my talk I will present results of an EEG study conducted by our team in order to address this controversy. Next I will discuss ideas for follow-up studies that we plan conduct in the near future.
See you there
