Researchers Dr Irina Baetu;
Brief description This project investigates genetic contributions to associative learning, one of our most fundamental abilities. Associative learning allows us to navigate in our environment, predict future events and make appropriate decisions. Electrophysiological measures will be used to study learning processes precisely and to investigate their relationship to polymorphisms in genes that regulate neural function. This research will further understanding of the mechanisms that generate individual differences in learning ability and will have applications for educational techniques and behavioural interventions.
