How the brain copes with indistinct signs

Indistinct information is harder to keep in mind. This applies to both spoken messages and sign language. In an project funded by the Swedish Research Council we are investigating for the first time how the brain copes with indistinct signs at different levels of memory load and how memory processing changes over time.

Scanning in progress. Outside in the control room the project team is monitoring the process.

During scanning participants perform a memory task based on prerecorded signs.
