Hearing and Donuts (Brain and Bagels) Seminar

September 14, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 9:30 am

Presenter: Brad Postle, Ph.D., Professor, UW Department of Psychology
Topic: Working Memory Delay-period Activity

The fact that a task as seemingly simple as the colored-squares change-detection task has such phenomenal psychometric properties (predicting, e.g., general fluid intelligence, standardized test performance, even lifetime earning potential and big five personality traits) suggests that it engages more than just “simple” storage operations. I’ll present and discuss ongoing fMRI, EEG, and TMS-EEG studies in our lab that are generating and/or testing novel hypotheses about the functions of delay-period activity.
