Charo Rueda, a professor from the University of Granada, was invited by the Almuñecar Town Hall to give a public lecture on the brain of Homo sapiens.
Charo Rueda, professor of Experimental Psychology at the University of Granada (UGR) and researcher in charge of the Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory at the Mind, Brain and Behaviour Research Centre (CIMCYC) of the UGR, gave an interesting and entertaining lecture on April 24 at the Casa de la Cultura in Almuñecar called “The Brain of Homo Sapiens: Attention, Will and Strategy”.
Rueda spoke about “the capacity of the human brain to endow the individual with an extraordinary ability to manage his or her behaviour in accordance with goals and objectives of great strategic value”, which is “based on the brain networks involved in the control of attention”.
She thanked the Town Hall for the invitation, “because it is very important to make society aware of the work and research that we have been carrying out at the University”.
Rueda has done extensive research on the neurocognitive development of attention and how it can be improved through training. She is the author of numerous publications on the various factors that influence the development of attention and self-regulation during childhood.
