Site: Carreire

Team: Neuroimagery and human cognition

Domain:Cognitive neuroscience

Research axis:
• Feedback learning
• Automation
• Cognitive training
• Attention and memory
• Emotions
• Neural networks
• Structural connectivity
• Functional connectivity

Scientific expertise:
• Associative learning

Neuroplasticity and aging. The aim of this project is twofold : 1. Evaluating the effects of multi-task training on feedback learning performance, considered as a model of behavioral adaptation to an everchanging world, and 2. Identifying the resting state and task-dependent brain networks associated with the behavioral performance
