Learning to Learn - Medial Prefrontal Cortex as Meta-Learning System in the Brain

Project description

Mechanistic insight into how our brain learns

Survival and adaptation to a changing environment is driven by the ability of animals and humans to utilise prior knowledge to quickly learn new behaviours. However, the mechanism by which the brain combines old information with new input remains elusive. The EU-funded Learning2Learn project aims to elucidate the role of the medial prefrontal cortex of the brain in continual learning and adaptation to new situations. The proposed mechanism is inspired by a theoretical machine-learning framework for artificial neural networks and will be investigated by combining cutting-edge experimental techniques to unveil the brain's learning mechanism.
