Differential Brain Mechanisms of Selection and Maintenance of Information during Working Memory Working memory is our ability to select and temporarily hold information as needed for complex cognitive operations. The temporal dynamics of sustained and transient neural activity supporting the
Learning through trial and error is required for daily living. To do so, the brain continuously update an error-sensitivity signal controlling how much is learned from past errors.
In the MEL group, we use behavioral learning task, electrophysiology (M-EEG) and machine-learning to decode the memory of previous errors and error-sensitivity from neural signals. Our goal is to understand the neural mechanisms underlying learning and to develop efficient interventions, like brain stimulation or mental training, to improve learning.
The MEL group is funded by the ATIP-AVENIR program.
