Title

"Working memory 2.0"

Presenter

Earl K. Miller, The Picower Institute for Learning and Memory and Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA

Abstract

Working memory is the sketchpad of consciousness, the fundamental mechanism the brain uses to gain volitional control over its thoughts and actions. For the past 50 years, working memory has been thought to rely on cortical neurons that fire continuous impulses that keep thoughts “online”.  However, new work from our lab has revealed more complex dynamics.  The impulses fire sparsely and interact with brain rhythms of different frequencies.  Higher frequency gamma (> 35 Hz) rhythms help carry the contents of working memory while lower frequency alpha/beta (~8-30 Hz) rhythms act as control signals that gate access to and clear out working memory.  In other words, a rhythmic dance between brain rhythms may underlie your ability to control your own thoughts.

Title

"Free will in the human brain?"

Presenter

Patrick Haggard, Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, University College London, UK

Abstract

The capacity for voluntary action ("free will") is often viewed as fundamental to human nature but is difficult to explain scientifically. The strongest neuroscientific consensus perhaps comes from drawing a contrast between voluntary actions and reflexes. But this does not positively say what a voluntary action is, and how the brain produces it. I will review three current ideas about volition, based on randomness, on value, and on problem-solving, respectively. I will discuss the relation between volition and consciousness, and I'll describe the difficulties of searching for neural correlates of volition in human experiments. I'll end with experimental EEG results suggesting that recent attempts to eliminate volition from neuroscience may be premature.

Swedish Foundations' Starting Grant 2020 is awarded to KI researcher, Carl Sellgren Majkowitz for his research in schizophrenia.

Carl Sellgren Majkowitz from the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology receives the grant, funded by Erling-Persson Family Foundation, for his research trying to link deviations in the brain development to schizophrenia. By reprogramming easy-accessible skin cells to brain cells the research team creates a model of brain development in a dish. Such models can then be compared to models derived from healthy volunteers and help the team to identify disease mechanisms. Such mechanisms can then also be manipulated and guide further drug development.

"We are very thankful to the foundation for this support that will help us to further develop our models and apply large-scale approaches", says Carl Sellgren Majkowitz.

Swedish Foundations’ Starting Grant is a collaboration between five non-profit foundations, the Erling-Persson Family Foundation, the Kempe Foundations, the Olle Engkvist Foundation, Ragnar Söderberg's foundation and Riksbankens Jubileumsfond, which funds the most prominent researchers with host institutions in Sweden. The researchers who are funded are those who applied for funding from the European Research Council (ERC), but who, despite the highest grades from ERC experts, missed out on a grant due to the limit funding available. The foundation's start-up grant is granted one year at a time and up to five years.
