Project description

The aim of this project is to obtain a better understanding of the mechanisms of spatial attention. We focus on the interaction between the dorsal and ventral attention network and how they are functionally recruited. We aim to investigate the influence of executive functioning on this interaction and to pay particular attention to the functional role of the ventral network.
