My project tries to understand how different brain areas work together as a system to implement cognitive control. To examine this, I combine functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) and effective connectivity methods (e.g., Ancestral Graphs) with classical response inhibition paradigms. The reliability and/or diversity of this "cognitive control network" is assessed with a variety of paradigms, each demanding a different sort of cognitive control like global/selective response inhibition or interference control.
This project is mostly funded by the NWO mosaic grant that I received in 2009 (180.000 Euro) and supervised by: Birte U. Forstmann Wery P. M. van den Wildenberg K. Richard Ridderinkhof Lourens J. Waldorp
