Marc Recasens defends his PhD thesis on November 19th, 2014

Source localization of deviance detection and regularity encoding in the auditory brain, this is the title of the PhD thesis leading to the International PhD Diploma by the University of Barcelona that Marc Recasens will be defending next Wednesday November 19th, 2014, at 11:00am. The defense will take place at Room 14, Faculty of Medicine, Campus Casanova.

The thesis used Magnetoencephalography (MEG) to identify the cerebral networks involved in early regularity encoding and deviance detection in the auditory system, and it is submitted as a compendium of three papers:

Recasens, M., Grimm, S, Capilla, A., Nowak, R., & Escera, C. (2014). Two sequential processes of change detection in hierarchically ordered areas of the human auditory cortex. Cerebral Cortex, 24:143–153.

Recasens, M., Grimm, S., Wollbrink, A., Pantev, C., & Escera, C. (2014). Encoding of nested levels of acoustic regularity in hierarchically organized areas of the human auditory cortex. Human Brain Mapping, 35(11):5701-5716.

Recasens, M., Leung, S., Grimm, S., Nowak, R., Escera, C. (2014). Repetition suppression and repetition enhancement index acoustic memory‐trace formation in the human brain: an MEG study. Neuroimage, resubmitted.

Congratulations, Marc!
