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. I will then talk about how this relates to individual skills of dual-tasking, and discuss the possibility of a ‘functional split-brain’ despite an intact hard-wiring.
