Summer Sessions GRIT Talk, Greg Ashby: “I have no idea how I did that: The remarkable learning abilities of the human brain”

Professor Greg Ashby from the Dept. of Psychology gives this free lecture. Humans have multiple learning systems that for the most part are functionally and anatomically distinct, evolved at different times for different purposes, and that learn in qualitatively different ways. Progress on understanding these systems has been slowed because most difficult learning tasks recruit multiple systems, making it difficult to know which system mediated any specific performance improvement. One approach that circumvents this problem is to study how people learn new categories of objects. This research has allowed us to map the neural networks that underlie each system and has identified many important and surprising differences in how the systems learn.
