Cross-Frequency Coupling Methodology May Help Cybernetics Modeling

1 Nov 2016

We are reading the paper ‘Is Perception Discrete or Continuous’ by VanRullen and Koch (2003). This paper hypothesizes that the brain uses cross-frequency coupling to produce working memory and sequence production. Cross-frequency coupling has since become a common metric used to analyze EEG and MEG and may provide a valuable tool in understanding and developing models of human adaptation.

ARL’s Human Science Campaign Announces Call for Proposals for 2018 Internal Basic Research

ARL’s 2018 Human Sciences competitive basic research program refresh (BRPR) seeks long-term internal research projects beginning in October 2018 focused on the broad research programs in Cybernetics (CybN) and The Human Variability Project (THVP). Internal ARL research is research conducted at ARL or ARL's open campus facilities by ARL "on-site" personnel. For this call, on-site personnel includes any students, post-doctoral researchers, or technicians located at any facility ARL employees work at (>25% of that ARL employees time) under a formal Open Campus agreement. For more information, there will be an open forum on these topics 5 Dec 2017 at Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD.
