Lifelong learning and cortical plasticity in the human brain.

In our everyday interactions we encounter a plethora of novel situations in different social contexts that require prompt decisions for successful actions. Extracting the key information from the highly complex input of the natural world, integrating information into coherent evidence, and deciding how to interpret it is a computationally challenging task that is far from understood. The goal of the proposed collaboration is to advance our understanding of the neural basis of learning for efficient decisions in complex, novel and uncertain environments by bringing together interdisciplinary expertise in advanced computational, behavioural and brain imaging methods.
