Neural bases of learning and long term consolidation of sequential regularities. Combined effects of discrete vs. continuous learning mode and post-training sleep

Units : Neuropsychology and Functional Neuroimaging Research Unit | ULB684

Description :

FRSM 3.4582.09. This project investigates the sleep-dependent reorganization of cerebral activity underlying performance in a
probabilistic serial reaction time task, an implicit paradigm with which our teams have demonstrated for the first time an
experience-dependent neuronal reactivation during human sleep. Also, we aim at better understanding the cerebral mechanisms involved in
learning discrete and continuous motor sequences, and their consolidation during sleep. This project should provide a new prospect on
the mechanisms subtending motor learning, and how sleep takes part in these processes. Promotors A. Cleeremans (Consciousness,
Cognition and Computation Group), P. van Bogaert (Erasme hospital, ULB), P. Maquet (Cyclotron Research Centre, ULg), and P. Peigneux
