In collaboration with UNC DSN lab, members from the Cohen Lab (Kelly Eom, Sarah Furlong, and Mac Woodburn) welcomed middle school boys around the community to learn more about UNC-CH and about the brain! We all had fun participating in many activities, like brain games and a tour around Howell hall, where we demonstrated many of our facilities for research.


Our segregation and integration paper published today in The Journal of Neuroscience!

November 30, 2016

Our new paper, a collaboration between Dr. Cohen and Dr. Mark D’Esposito at UC Berkeley, was published today in Journal of Neuroscience. You can find a summary here. We found that brain network organization can dynamically reconfigure when cognitive demands change, and that the balance between segregation into distinct brain networks and integration across multiple brain networks is dependent on the specific cognitive requirements of a task. The more participants were able to achieve the optimal balance between segregation and integration, the better they did on the tasks!
