Upcoming Scientific Lectures //
How the Brain Deals with Novelty and Ambiguity
Who: Elkhonon Goldberg, Ph.D., Clinical Professor of Neurology, NYU School of Medicine
When: Tuesday, March 7, 2017 at 12:00pm
Where: MRN's Large Conference Room (Pete and Nancy Domenici Hall - 1101 Yale Blvd NE)
ABSTRACT: The neural substrates underlying a cognitive task are not static. They change as the task becomes less novel and more routinized, and less ambiguous and more constrained. We will discuss the functional neuroanatomy of spatio-temporal dynamics of learning and resolving ambiguity in relationship to the frontal lobes and cerebral hemispheres, and to several neurological disorders.
