December 22, 2017 Friday Lunch Seminar
12:15 〜 13:00
CiNet 1F Conference Room
“Research on learning & memory with neuromodulation in Computational Learning & Memory Neuroscience (CLMN) Lab in Korea”
Center for Neuroimaging Research
In this seminar, I present a multimodal approach for research in learning & memory, combining behavioral experiments, computational models, neuroimaging, and neuromodulation. In the first part of my talk, I introduce a unifying mechanism accounting for the spacing and the contextual interference effects and then search neural substrates related to motor memories predicted by the computational model. I also visualize the substrates of motor memories from the fronto-parietal to the anterior cerebellar area with gradually increasing time scales of their activities. In the second part of my talk, I present a recent study showing how episodic memory, which is different from motor memory, can be modulated by non-invasive brain stimulation (TMS). I reported TMS can be used to enhance fMRI activity of hippocampal-cortical memory network during associative memory formation. Additionally, I also present another study investigating on behavioral and neural signatures of reciprocal interaction between motor memory and episodic memory. Lastly, I discuss future research plans in my lab, computational learning & memory neuroscience (CLMN) lab in Korea.
About CiNet’s Friday Lunch Seminars:
The Friday Lunch Seminar is CiNet’s main regular meeting series, held every week at 12:15 in the beautiful main lecture theatre on the ground floor at CiNet. The talks are typically 40mins long and orientated towards an inter-disciplinary audience. They are informal, social, and most people bring their own lunch to eat during the talk. They are open to anyone who is feeling curious and wants to come, regardless of where you work.
