Thursday, June 29, 2017- KEYNOTE: ‘Preperception’ in the human brain
This video is currently being processed. It will be ready for viewing shortly.
Attention refers to the set of mechanisms that tune psychological and neural processing to focus on the relevant events to guide adaptive behavior. According to the standard model, goal-based representations facilitate neural processing by biasing activity according to receptive-field properties. I will extend the standard model, by discussing research that reveals additional sources of biases, such as long-term memories associated with anticipated events; shows that biases also influence neural activity based on the timing of events; and illustrates how biases continue to shape neural activity within memory representations.
