How to Save Football From Head Injuries
The major goal of the Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory is to characterize the forms of knowledge represented in the human prefrontal cortex. While it is believed that the prefrontal cortex plays a crucial role in planning, social cognition, reasoning, and reflection, scientists remain puzzled about its underlying cognitive architecture and the number of circumscribed prefrontal cortex brain sectors subserving specific cognitive operations and/or knowledge. Laboratory studies are dedicated to testing hypotheses generated by the theoretical framework we have adapted. An additional primary goal of the Laboratory is to better understand the principles of neuroplasticity using cognitive neuroscience methods in order to improve recovery or maintenance of function in people with brain damage.
