Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Background: We switch between tasks multiple times every day. A robust finding is that switching results in poorer task performance, because people usually take longer to complete tasks and they are more subject to errors. These outcomes are known as switch costs. One influential explanation for them is that they reflect interference arising from completing a previous task - known as task-set inertia.
Aim of the study: In this program of work we used a novel approach for assessing task-set inertia in memory experiments using Event-Related Potentials (ERPs). Our aim was to examine how task properties affect task-set inertia, which in turn will give insight into the mechanisms which underlie this phenomenon.
Method: Healthy volunteers completed an initial study phase followed by a switching task, during which ERPs were acquired. In this task participants switched between completing a memory task (retrieving information from the study phase) and a perceptual task. These tasks alternated every two trials.
Results: An ERP index of the retrieval of study information was evident in the memory task. It was also present on the first trial of the perceptual task but was markedly attenuated on the second. Moreover, this task-irrelevant ERP activity was positively correlated with the behavioural cost associated with switching between tasks.
Conclusions: These findings indicate that in the perceptual task irrelevant information was more active on the first trial compared to the second. This provides direct neural evidence of task-set inertia, its duration, and the functional role it plays in switch costs.

Electrophysiological insights into involuntary memory retrieval

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
There are many instances where we would prefer memories did not come to mind, perhaps because they are distressing or embarrassing. Research indicates that people can sometimes exert control over memory and prevent involuntary retrieval. In this study we used event-related potentials (ERPs) to examine some circumstances under which individuals
can do this. In particular, whether people continue to retrieve information from memory when it is no longer required, and if so, how long this persists. In an initial study phase words were shown individually on the left or right side of fixation. In a test phase these words were shown again, interspersed with unstudied words, in one of three locations: above, at, or
below fixation. Participants were cued trial-by-trial to complete one of two tasks: indicate the current screen location of the word (perceptual task), or indicate if the word was new or where it was displayed in the study phase (memory task). Two trials of each task were completed before a switch to the alternate task was required. An ERP index of successful memory retrieval was reliable on the first trial of the perceptual task, after switching from the memory task, but not on the subsequent trial. These findings indicate that there was involuntary retrieval of irrelevant memory information immediately after switching from the memory task but this was not sustained. This could be due to memory control mechanisms taking time to engage or the dissipation of a task set that assists memory retrieval.

Electrophysiological evidence for retrieval mode immediately after a task switch
Publication year: 2015

http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1053811914010738
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
It has been suggested that retrieving episodic information involves adopting a cognitive state or set: retrieval mode. In a series of studies, an event-related potential (ERP) index of retrieval mode has been identified in designs which cue participants on a trial-by-trial basis to switch between preparing for and then completing an episodic or non-episodic retrieval task. However, a confound in these studies is that along with task type the content of what is to be retrieved has varied. Here we examined whether the ERP index of retrieval mode remains when the contents of an episodic and non-episodic task are highly similar – both requiring a location judgement. In the episodic task participants indicated the screen location where words had been shown in a prior study phase (left/right/new); whereas in the perceptual task they indicated the current screen location of the word (top/middle/bottom). Consistent with previous studies the ERPs elicited while participants prepared for episodic retrieval were more positive-going at right-frontal sites than when they prepared for the perceptual task. This index was observed, however, on the first trial after participants had switched tasks, rather than on the second trial, as has been observed previously. Potential reasons for this are discussed, including the critical manipulation of similarity in contents between tasks, as well as the use of a predictable cue sequence.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
One influential explanation for the costs incurred when switching between tasks is that they reflect interference arising from completing the previous task—known as task-set inertia. We report a novel approach for assessing task-set inertia in a memory experiment using event-related potentials (ERPs). After a study phase, participants completed a test block in which they switched between a memory task (retrieving information from the study phase) and a perceptual task. These tasks alternated every two trials. An ERP index of the retrieval of study information was evident in the memory task. It was also present on the first trial of the perceptual task but was markedly attenuated on the second. Moreover, this task-irrelevant ERP activity was positively correlated with a behavioral cost associated with switching between tasks. This real-time measure of neural activity thus provides direct evidence of task-set inertia, its duration, and the functional role it plays in switch costs.

Title: BIAL Grants
Start date: 1994
History:
In 1994 the BIAL Foundation launched a programme of science research grants with the aim of encouraging the research into Man’s physical and mental processes, namely in fields still largely unexplored but which warrant further scientific analysis, as Psychophysiology and Parapsychology.
Since its launch, applications to the BIAL grants have been increasing. Up to now 461 projects have been supported, involving more than 1000 researchers from 27 countries.
The approved applications have benefited from grants in amounts comprised between €5,000 and €50, 000. The amount to be granted is fixed by the Scientific board according to the needs of each project.
The supported projects have originated, until April 2013, in about 600 full papers, 172 out of which were published in indexed international journals with an average impact factor of 3.6 and a substantial number of citations (1665).
Among the BIAL Foundation fellows is worth highlighting the presence of scientists from prestigious universities from the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Russia, Germany, Japan, France, Canada, and many others.
The BIAL grants are promoted biannually.

Preparation breeds success: Brain activity predicts remembering

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Successful retrieval of episodic information is thought to involve the adoption of memory states that ensure that stimulus events are treated as episodic memory cues (retrieval mode) and which can bias retrieval toward specific memory contents (retrieval orientation). The neural correlates of these memory states have been identified in many neuroimaging studies, yet critically there is no direct evidence that they facilitate retrieval success. We cued participants before each test item to prepare to complete an episodic (retrieve the encoding task performed on the item at study) or a non-episodic task. Our design allowed us to separate event-related potentials (ERPs) elicited by the preparatory episodic cue according to the accuracy of the subsequent memory judgment. We predicted that a correlate of retrieval orientation should be larger in magnitude preceding correct source judgments than that preceding source errors. This hypothesis was confirmed. Preparatory ERPs at bilateral frontal sites were significantly more positive-going when preceding correct source judgments than when preceding source errors or correct responses in a non-episodic baseline task. Furthermore this effect was not evident prior to recognized items associated with incorrect source judgments. This pattern of results indicates a direct contribution of retrieval orientation to the recovery of task-relevant information and highlights the value of separating preparatory neural activity at retrieval according to subsequent memory accuracy. Moreover, at a more general level this work demonstrates the important role of pre-stimulus processing in ecphory, which has remained largely neglected to date.
