Brain's flexible hub network helps humans adapt

Brain's flexible hub network helps humans adapt

A recent collaboration between the Anticevic Lab and the Cole Lab was published in Nature Neuroscience. Cole and colleagues, in collaboration with Anticevic Lab, tested a novel hypothesis for how humans are able to implement highly adaptive behavior, such as rapidly learning new tasks from instructions. This hypothesis suggests select regions of the brain are 'flexible hubs' that coordinate brain networks to perform new tasks (e.g., orchestrating visual and motor information in a novel visuo-motor task).
