Time: 15:00~16:30

Location: Osaka University Graduate School of Human Sciences
                ROOM 31 (MAIN Building)

Speaker: Prof. Dr. Markus Ullsperger

       * This seminar will be presented in English.

Monitoring for erroneous and unexpected action outcomes is essential to determine when adaptation is needed to optimize goal achievement. First I will give an overview of EEG and fMRI correlates of performance monitoring. Building on current theories relating performance monitoring to reinforcement learning mechanisms, I will discuss which signals are represented in the performance monitoring system and how they are weighted to determine the need for adaptation. The second part of the presentation will focus on neuronal mechanisms of post-error adjustments, such as post-error slowing and post-error attentional regulation.
