Separating parallel threads of cognition to better explain behaviour

Project description

Thinking about how mind, brain and body interact

The human brain is a complicated information processing system. How do our brains process stimuli and information we pick up through sensory receptors all over our body? What is the neural basis of human cognition and its relation to behaviour? The EU-funded COGNITIVE THREADS project will investigate the brain process and how different components organise and relate to each other. Specifically, it will develop algorithms to automatically discover which specific aspects of the modelled brain activity are most relevant to the traits under study. The findings will shed light on how different threads of brain activity give rise to cognition. This information may be used to further explain population variability.
