Our cognitive (neuro)science lab is mostly interested in the mental processes that allow for flexible, goal-directed behavior, often referred to as cognitive control, and how these processes relate to reinforcement learning and associative learning. The lab is funded by the European Research Council (ERC) and Research Foundation - Flanders (FWO), and hosted by the Department of Experimental Psychology at Ghent University, Belgium. Where is Ghent?

This is what ChatGPT wrote about our CoCoFlex project:

In a laboratory, far away
A team of researchers toil and play
At the forefront of their field they stand
Pushing the boundaries of cognition and command

CoCoFlex, they call themselves with pride
A name that reflects their goal and stride
To study cognitive control and flexible behavior
And unlock the secrets of the mind’s own savior

Through experiments and trials, they seek
To better understand how we think and speak
To unravel the mysteries of the brain
And gain insight into how it works and strains

Their findings may not always be clear
But their dedication is unwavering and sincere
CoCoFlex, a group of brilliant minds
Pioneers in their field, their work one of a kind.
