Brain-behavior correlates of associative learning

Learning cross-modal associations is an everyday feat for our brains. Despite the ease with which we learn to associate events across the senses relatively little is known about the short-term learning processes of cross-modal information at the level of brain areas.

The purpose of this project is to understand which cognitive processes are used during a training task where the goal is to combine information from different senses. MEG is measured from kindergarten and school-age children as well as adults to evaluate dynamics of cross-modal neural networks related to letter-speech sound learning.

This research is part of the ChildBrain project and funded by the European Union.
