Project description

Humans can rapidly and flexibly adapt to task requirements; consider for example the steps we take for executing a novel arithmetic problem. This flexibility is poorly understood, although it is crucial in daily life (e.g., education, traffic, social interaction, …). We address this issue by framing flexibility in a cognitive neurocomputational perspective.
