Chaos & Complex Systems Seminar
Functional integration and split in the brain
Time: 12:05 pm
Place: 4274 Chamberlin (refreshments will be served)
Speaker: Shun Sasai, UW Department of Psychiatry
Abstract: We often engage in two concurrent but unrelated activities, such as driving on a quiet road while talking over the phone. When the conversation is unrelated to driving, how does the brain manage these two concurrent flows? I will present our recent work showing that a brain may functionally split into two separate 'driving' and 'listening' systems when a listening task is unrelated to concurrent driving, but not when the two tasks are related.
