Project Number: VEGA 1/0355/20

Abstract

The proposed project plans to conduct a series of experimental and computational-analytical studies with the aim to study how we use different attention mechanisms to locate sounds in the virtual hearing environment. The project will be assessing the neural activity using electroencephalography and compare it with behavioral performance and predictions of computational models of attention mechanism. During the design proposal, analysis and modeling of observed attention mechanisms, the several advanced computational tools will be developed, based on experimental data. The results will be important, for example, for the development of new prosthetic devices and new virtual reality technologies.
