Ultra-high field imaging of perceptual learning and human brain plasticity

Project description

Shining light on perceptual learning

Experience enhances the way we sense the world around us through a process known as perceptual learning. However, the implicated brain mechanisms remain largely unknown. The key objective of the EU-funded Laminar-PL project is to study the neural basis of perceptual learning with emphasis on the computations and brain networks implicated in the process. Using imaging and computational modelling, scientists will provide important knowledge on how the brain uses learning and experience to adapt and improve our behaviour. Apart from scientific impact, project results will contribute to the design of education and rehabilitation training programmes.
