The human visual brain can learn and adapt to change, which solves many of the problems posed by an ever-changing visual environment. However, to maintain a consistent overall representation of the visual world, the brain also has to retain previously acquired neuronal mechanisms. The key is to strike a balance between plasticity and stability.Increasing our knowledge about the stability and plast ...

Our proposal is based on the idea that real-time functional neuroimaging can be used to train patients to regulate their own brain activity via neurofeedback training and thus modulate the brain networks of mental disorder, restore function, improve symptoms and promote resilience. We have brought together the core groups that have been instrumental in the development of methods for real-time func ...

IMAging GEnetics for MENtal Disorders (IMAGEMEND)

Start date: Oct 1, 2013, End date: Sep 30, 2017,

"Mental disorders are leading causes of disability, absence from work and premature retirement in Europe. While magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) facilities are broadly available and a vast research literature exists, few neuroimaging applications have reached clinical practice in psychiatry. A major problem is that mental illnesses are currently diagnosed as discrete entities defined clinically. I ...

Adaptive Brain Computations (ABC)

Start date: Jun 1, 2012, End date: May 31, 2016,

Adaptive interactions with the environment depend on sophisticated brain plasticity mechanisms at multiple levels: from single neurons to large-scale brain networks. Traditionally, the study of plasticity has been fragmented into sensory, motor or decision-related circuits. However, translating brain plasticity findings to brain repair requires an understanding of the interactions between these ci ...

Co-ordination for optimal decisions in dynamic environments (CODDE)

Start date: Sep 1, 2008, End date: Aug 31, 2012,

... ial interactions depend on making prompt decisions in a dynamic world. Despite the seeming ease with which we are able to recognise targets for attention and direct our actions, understanding how the brain extracts the key information from the complex input of the natural world to support successful behaviour is one of the greatest open scientific challenges. Meeting this challenge has clear inter ...
