“The dynamics of cognition: Decoding brain activity with machine learning”
Performance in a cognitive task, such as a memory test, does not clearly distinguish between alternative theories of the underlying processes. Brain activity can provide important additional insights into the dynamics of cognitive processes as they unfold. I will show examples of my work where I used multivariate statistical (“machine learning”) methods to quantify associated neural signals to inform theories of human memory.
