Summary
We know that attention disorders such AD/HD, or attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, affect more than four percent of the population and are connected to other neuropsychiatric disorders. However, the neural circuits and computations underlying attention remain poorly understood. Stefan Treue, professor of cognitive neuroscience and biological psychology at the German Primate Center and University of Göttingen, is providing a more rigorous description of the correlates and signatures of attention in neural activity - and thereby starting to identify the sources of attentional influences on neural activity and perception. Treue was recently honored with the prestigious Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Prize from the DFG (German Research Foundation) for his experimental study of the primate visual system, particularly that of the macaque monkey. Treue details in this Falling Walls lecture how he is successfully exploring the central influence of attention on our perception and contributing to an overturning of old ideas about information processing in our nervous system
