Roland Nigbur, Michael X Cohen, K. Richard Ridderinkhof, Birgit Stürmer
2012 Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience  
Theta power over MFC was sensitive to both perceptual and response conflict.  ...  A speeded flanker task allowed us to investigate conflict-type-specific control networks for perceptual and response conflicts.  ...  Post hoc analyses of the present flanker task revealed that theta coupling over parietal electrode sites linearly reflected the degree of conflict in stimulus incongruent and response incongruent trials  ...

Midfrontal conflict-related theta-band power reflects neural oscillations that predict behavior

Michael X Cohen, Tobias H. Donner
2013 Journal of Neurophysiology  
EEG power modulations of theta-band (4 -8 Hz) activity over the human midfrontal cortex during response conflict have been proposed to reflect neural oscillations that support conflict detection and resolution  ...  Furthermore, within-subject regression analyses revealed that the non-phase-locked theta power was a significantly better predictor of the conflict condition than was the time-domain phase-locked EEG component  ...  Here, we show that: 1) a major component (Ͼ80%) of task-related theta power modulations over midfrontal cortex is time-locked but not phase-locked to stimulus onset or response (the specific modulation  ...

Motor Interference, but not Sensory Interference, Increases Midfrontal Theta Activity and Brain Synchronization During Reactive Control

Jakob Kaiser, Simone Schütz-Bosbach
2021 Journal of Neuroscience  
These findings clarify the function of midfrontal theta dynamics as a key aspect of neural top-down control and help to dissociate domain-general from motor-specific aspects of self-control.  ...  In contrast, our results show that oscillatory theta dynamics during reactive control mostly reflect motor-related adjustments.SIGNIFICANCE STATEMENT: Humans need to exercise self-control over both their  ...  This represents a novel interpretation of midfrontal theta oscillations during reactive control, by demonstrating domain-specific effects of theta power and connectivity.  ...

Theta lingua franca: A common mid-frontal substrate for action monitoring processes

James F. Cavanagh, Laura Zambrano-Vazquez, John J. B. Allen
2011 Psychophysiology  
Permutation tests were used to identify the dominant time-frequency responses of stimulus-and response-locked conditions as well as the enhanced responses to novelty, conflict, punishment, and error.  ...  A dominant theta band feature was found in all conditions, and both ERP component amplitudes and theta power measures were similarly modulated by novelty, conflict, punishment, and error.  ...  Together, the findings here suggest that theta dynamics are ubiquitous to stimuli and responses, and variance within this theta feature reflects neural responses due to novelty, conflict, punishment, and  ...

Frontal theta as a mechanism for cognitive control

2014 Trends in Cognitive Sciences  
These FMu activities have largely been quantified as event-related potential (ERP) components that reflect mPFC-related control processes elicited by novel information, conflicting stimulus-response requirements  ...  Here, we focus on the overwhelming similarities: each of the eliciting events that evoke these responses shares a need for increased cognitive control (novelty, conflict, punishment, and error), and these  ...  This report was supported by NIH RO1 MH080066-01 and NSF 1125788.  ...

Frequency Band-Specific Electrical Brain Stimulation Modulates Cognitive Control Processes

Joram van Driel, Ilja G. Sligte, Jara Linders, Daniel Elport, Michael X Cohen, Andrea Antal
2015 PLoS ONE  
Conflict was introduced by incongruency between the location of the target stimulus and the required response hand. As a control condition, we used alpha-band (8-12 Hz) tACS over the same location.  ...  Importantly, this conflict effect was reduced specifically during theta tACS, which was driven by slower response times on low conflict trials.  ...  Acknowledgments The authors thank Joris Oonk and Pia Haver for assistance in data collection.
