CANCELLED: The Westend Lectures on Brain and Cognition
with Prof. Kia Nobre, PhD: Temporal anticipation in cognition

The proactive anticipation of events, which is fundamental to guiding adaptive behaviour, has rich temporal structure. In my talk, I will discuss our research revealing how the human brain extracts regularities about the temporal associations, probabilities, and patterns among events to tune anticipatory signals in time to optimise the pick up of sensory information during perception and the utilisation of memoranda during retrieval. 

Please note that this lecture is cancelled and will be rescheduled in 2020.
