Learning, Performance, Neurorehabilitation
- How do we learn and how does learning shape neural systems?
- How does the brain learn to produce proper judgments and decisions?
- What cognitive and neural factors influence the improvement or deterioration of our performance?
- How do our perceptual systems develop through experience, and how do they reorganize following damage to the nervous system?
- Apply this knowledge to guide learning and neurorehabilitation.
