Visual scanning and working memory

Description

Participants will be seated in front of a screen and asked to perform a visual-memory task (n-back task). During the task, participants will press a button on the keyboard once they recognize a certain letter on one of two places on the screen. At the same time, we collect data of brain activity (EEG) and eye-movements (EOG). This means, we place skin electrodes on the head as well as around the eyes.
