Research Description #

Asal Nouri is interested in using non-invasive brain imaging to understand the neural mechanisms involved in attention, and working memory in human subjects and compare them to those of artificial intelligence agents. More specifically, studying how representations from sensory areas are prioritized, and utilized at higher level cortical areas to produce efficient memory-guided motor behavior.
