MAKING SENSE OF THE WORLD: COGNITIVE AND NEURAL PROCESSES UNDERPINNING HOW WE COMPREHEND, PREDICT AND REMEMBER EVENTS

Project description

Mental representation of the world through event processing

We are continuously being exposed to information about this world. However, it remains elusive how we process our experiences and events in a cohesive manner. The EU-funded EVENTS research project will employ an interdisciplinary approach that involves behavioural studies and functional MRI. The aim is to investigate the hypothesis that we process information in independent neural modules which are then combined into an event model. Insight into how these models impact perception and memory of everyday situations will address one of the fundamental questions in neuroscience, namely how we perceive and represent the external world.
