How the Brain Controls our Attention
Jülich, 25 March 2014 – What factors and processes within the human brain determine how we perceive things and then react accordingly? This question is being explored by a research group at Forschungszentrum Jülich headed by early-career scientist Dr. Simone Vossel. The German federal government will provide the group with some € 1.95 million in funding over the next five years. Thomas Rachel, Member of the German Bundestag and Parliamentary State Secretary to the Federal Minister of Education and Research, presented the official funding notification at the Institute of Neuroscience and Medicine today.
