Despite the wealth of information available to us at any one time, we are able to navigate through these sensory-laden environments in a purposeful way. How do our brains select what is relevant to our current goal, direct our behaviour accordingly, and then update this once the goal changes? Using fMRI and MEG-fMRI fusion, I study how the representation of task information is affected by the manner in which we direct our attention (e.g., towards a location, and/or to a feature) in a core frontoparietal network (multiple-demand" (MD) regions)
