Pieter Roelfsema's research team at the Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience studies networks of nerve cells that are distributed across many cortical and sub-cortical regions.

How does thinking work? Modern theories do not attribute our ability to ‘interpret’, ‘attend’ or to ‘make decisions’ to single nerve cells or even to single brain areas, but rather to networks of nerve cells that are distributed across many cortical and sub-cortical regions. Pieter Roelfsema's research team uses a combined neurophysiological, psychological and computational perspective.
