Mapping the Interaction between Semantic Representation and Control Systems: The Controlled Semantic Cognition

Project description

The sum of all our experiences gives meaning to our actions

Semantic cognition refers to our ability to utilise information we have acquired over a lifetime of learning and experiences to facilitate innumerable verbal and non-verbal behaviours. It relies on two principal interacting neural systems: representation and control. The neural circuitry underlying this controlled semantic cognition (CSC) framework and integrating these two neural systems is largely unknown. The EU-funded MapInCSC projection is studying both subsystems experimentally in healthy people and in patients with semantic disorders. Scientists are utilising the imaging data to model the dynamic networks and characterise the causality of interactions in health and disease.
