Deco Lab

The Computational and Theoretical Neuroscience Group of the Department of Technology at the University Pompeu Fabra, directed by Prof. Gustavo Deco, investigates mechanisms of perception and cognition. They construct models of neuronal mechanisms of visual attention and how attention is controlled through an interplay of conflict detection/management and short term memory. This approach follows the hypothesis that cognitive phenomena like visual information selection, reasoning and decision-making about which information to select, are generated by the mutual recurrent influence and interaction between brain areas related to visual perception, conflict detection, learning and memory.
