Two new publications from the MEMO team


The MEMO team has just published two articles:


  • Felipe Pedraza (MEMO), Teodóra Vékony (MEMO), and Dezső Németh (MEMO), in collaboration with Barbara Tillmann (CNRS Dijon), Gaen Plancher (EMC, Lyon2), Royce Anders (University Paul Valéry Montpellier 3) and other international collaborators published a new article about individual differences in implicit statistical learning. The article showed a competitive relationship between prefrontal cortex functions and this fundamental learning mechanism.

  • Dezső Németh (Memo), Teodora Vékony (MEMO), in collaboration with international researchers, published a review article in the field of political neuroscience.
