Putting Humpty Together Again: Decoding Brain Networks During Real-World Processing

Humpty Dumpty

An important task for cognitive neuroscience is to understand how the brain supports broad functions that are engaged in everyday life, like interpersonal communication. Great progress has been made by decomposing these functions into discrete processes that can be associated with activity in particular brain regions and networks. What we do not know, however, is if and how these processes operate together. Thus, our overarching goal will be to understand how brain networks supports real-world behaviours under more ecological conditions.
