Post-Movie Subliminal Measurement (PMSM), for Investigating Implicit Social Bias Mamdooh Afdile1,3,5, Iiro P. Jääskeläinen1,2,4 1Department of Neuroscience and Biomedical Engineering, Aalto University, 2Advanced Magnetic Imaging (AMI) Centre, Aalto NeuroImaging, Aalto University, 3Department of Media, School of Arts Design and Architecture, Aalto University, 4International Laboratory for Social Neuroscience, Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, National Research University Higher School of Economics, 5Department of Film and Media, Stockholm University of the Arts This protocol describes the use of movies to investigate brain mechanisms underlying implicit social biases during functional magnetic resonance imaging. When the face of a protagonist is presented after a movie subliminally, it evokes an implicit response based on knowledge of the protagonist gained during the movie.
Effects of Transcranial Alternating Current Stimulation on the Primary Motor Cortex by Online Combined Approach with Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Anna Shpektor1,3, Maria Nazarova4, Matteo Feurra1,2 1School of Psychology, Centre for Cognition and Decision Making, National Research University Higher School of Economics, 2Department of Medicine, Surgery and Neuroscience, Unit of Neurology and Clinical Neurophysiology, Brain Investigation & Neuromodulation Lab. (Si-BIN Lab), Azienda Ospedaliera Universitaria of Siena, 3Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Oxford, 4Centre for Cognition and Decision Making, National Research University Higher School of Economics Transcranial Alternating Current Stimulation (tACS) allows the modulation of cortical excitability in a frequency-specific fashion. Here we show a unique approach which combines online tACS with single pulse Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) in order to "probe" cortical excitability by means of Motor Evoked Potentials.
