Brief description This project aims to study attention in the human brain. Everything people think and do depends on the ability to pay attention. Since brains can only process a limited amount of information at once, people use attention to prioritise what is most important. Scientists have detailed information about brain activation, but need new methods and converging evidence to link this activation with the behaviour it is thought to support. The project expects to advance knowledge about how attention works, improve inferences made from brain imaging, and contribute to a global effort to understand the brain.
