Andrea Bertana has been awarded a PhD grant in Visual Computation Lab led by Janneke Jehee at Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour, Radboud University (Holland). He will be studying the neural mechanisms of top-down attention and perceptual learning in both healthy subjects and patients. In particular, he will focus on the role of Lateral Geniculus Nucleus (LGN) in vision.

This project is part of HealthPAC  - an integrated, international and interdisciplinary network of renowned perception-action (PAC) research labs, clinical departments, and industry, who together will host 14 PhD students. Its mission is to understand the neural mechanisms of sensory-motor control and its disorders, and to utilize this knowledge to enhance the quality of life. HealthPAC has been made possible by a €3.3M grant by the European Commission through its Marie Curie Innovative Doctoral Programme scheme.
