It has been repeatedly demonstrated that EEG oscillations reflect cognitive processes. So far, however, EEG oscillations have only been correlated with cognitive functions. A new method now allows to demonstrate their causal role in brain function. During transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS) an alternating current is applied to the scalp of human subjects and interferes with EEG oscillations. Multiple experiments will be introduced which all apply tACS at different frequencies in order to modulate both EEG oscillations and cognitive or behavioural functions. The results demonstrate that tACS can modulate ongoing brain oscillations. This modulation, in turn, seems to modulate cognitive processes such as detection and perception as well as behavioural measures such as reaction time and error rates.
