Cholinergic and dopaminergic modulation of attention, learning and plasticity

时间:2018-9-25,3:00 pm
报告人:Prof. Dr. Christiane M. Thiel (德国奥尔登堡大学)



   In recent years the rapidly growing use of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) has increased our understanding of brain mechanisms of cognitive function. I will illustrate how fMRI can be used in conjunction with psychopharmacology to understand neurochemical modulation of cognition. The first part of the talk will focus on how acetylcholine and dopamine impact brain activity during auditory learning. In the second part I will mainly focus on the cholinergic neurotransmitter system in visuospatial attention and attentional control. Finally, I will also illustrate how new, network-based approaches of fMRI data analysis can further our understanding of neurochemical modulation in the human brain.
