EEG Study: Brain Infers Structure, Rules of Tasks

A new study from Anne Collins, Postdoctoral Researcher in Prof. Michael Frank's Laboratory of Neural Computation and Cognition, documents the brain activity underlying our strong tendency to infer a structure of context and rules when learning new tasks (even when a structure isn’t valid). The findings, which revealed individual differences, shows how we try to apply task knowledge to similar situations and could inform future research on learning disabilities.
