PhD Thesis, Presentation, Latex Template

I recently defended my thesis. I am uploading my presentation with idea that somebody might find it useful and get some inspiration. 

The pdf file can be found here here.

If you like the layout of this thesis, you may find it useful to download the latex template that is used to generate it from here.

I share this with the idea that anyone who would like to start writing their theses, could easily use this template to start up producing, rather than wasting time to optimize the look of the final thesis. It might take considerable time until everything appears reasonably good.

The good starting point is the PhDThesis_Selim.tex file, where all the subsequent chapters (in the form of .tex files) are referred and included. The figures are not included in the zip package therefore if you compile PhDThesis_Selim.tex file it will not succeed.

Singing Gabors: Visual stimulus locking of EEG is modulated by temporal congruency of auditory stimuli

In this study, we used what we called back then the "Singing Gabors".
These consist of Gabor functions, where one of the parameters (here orientation parameter) is modulated either in a congruent or incongruent way with the audio signal.

Guess which of the following videos is the congruent one:

In the congruent case, the audio signal's frequency changes simultaneously with  the orientation of the Gabor. This leads (in my case) to a vivid illusion of agency, meaning that I perceive the animated Gabor function as if it was producing the sound itself (the paper deals with much simpler questions though).

In the incongruent case, the audio signal is orthogonal to the changes in the orientation parameter of the Gabor function. Still it is interesting to realize how human perception is biased for fusing these two as if they were congruent.
