Project description

This project will investigate the neural mechanisms that underpin our ability to learn novel behavior via instruction. Different neuroscience methods will be applied, including functional brain imaging, electrophysiology, and non-invasive brain stimulation, to capture complementary aspects of neural information processing. This integrative approach will likely yield novel and important insights into the human brain’s unique capacity for behavioral flexibility.
