Language, working memory, and the brain at SfN 2018

Terri Scott, CNRLab member and PhD candidate in Neuroscience, presented her new research on functional convergence and divergence of the neurocomputational architectures for language and working memory at the recent meeting of the Society for Neuroscience in San Diego Terri discovered that just because there is functional overlap between two tasks in a particular brain area, that does not necessarily mean that they are supported by the same computational architectures in the underlying neural response.

Terri received a Trainee Professional Development Award from the Society for Neuroscience for this work.
