About the event
'Investigating the interplay between breath and attention'
Abstract: 'Ancient knowledge from yogis highlights the importance of stabilising the breath for a stable mind. Recent experimentation in Cognitive Neuroscience has drawn a link between respiration dynamics and cognition in a wide range of paradigms. Building on this research, including crucial work previously done in the Dockree Lab, Ralph Andrews PhD student is examining the interplay between breath and attention during sustained attention paradigms. In addition to correlating behavioural measures and respiration dynamics, this research investigates signal correlations between breath and brainstem modulated attention using pupil diameter as a proxy measure for locus coeruleus noradrenaline release.'
