Cognitive Neuroscience of Human Intelligence

Aron Keith Barby, Director of the Decision Neuroscience Laboratory at the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology at the University of Illinois and keynote speaker at e-Leot 2015 Conference will be introducing his research on the contributions of fronto-parietal network function to human intelligence. He will be uncovering the executive, social, and emotional foundations of intelligent behaviour and their joint impact on perception, memory, language and thought.

Instead it suggests that each cortical region has more than one function and that functions of distinct areas might overlap with one another to support an integrative architecture for executive, social, and emotional processes.
