The ITN – coordinated by Glyn Humphreys, Oxford – will run over a period of 3.5 years and is supported by the EU with a total funding volume of over 3.7 M €. It will finance research projects and training opportunities of 13 PhD students. Additionally, regular meetings and exchanges between partners will take place.
The network involves neuropsychologists, neuroscientists, and industry partners in Oxford, Munich, Copenhagen, Magdeburg, Barcelona, Dublin, and elsewhere. German contributing scientists are Jochen Braun (coordinator of the Bernstein Group Magdeburg) and Hermann Müller (LMU Munich). The common goal is to deepen our understanding of the neurobiological basis of attention, by linking computational models, brain imaging information, and behavioral performance, and by applying the results to clinical procedures for diagnosis and rehabilitation.
