Brain interactive: The attention challenge

Professor Nilli Lavie – Professor of Psychology and Brain Sciences, Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, UCL


Attention affects all information processing from perception and awareness to learning, memory and action. Consideration of attentional abilities and limitations is therefore critical for understanding and improving brain-machine interaction. In this talk I discuss the psychological and brain mechanisms of attention, outlining the fundamental principles as well as challenges of harnessing attention effectively.
