Project description

Knowledge and cognitive controle are studied by means of fMRI, EEG, TMS and computational modelling. The research goes further than localising cognitive functions in the brain and emphasizes how the brain functions as a system. It will also be investigated how networks develop through learning, Netwerk of knowledge and control will be integrated.
