I like to think about how we are not just passive receivers of information, but also active learners. We cannot possibly attend to and understand everything that happens around us, so we need to actively select what to attend to and what to ignore. To do so, we must integrate both our prior knowledge about the environment and our goals to guide our attention. I am interested in how the brain solves this problem, and how to describe this​ solution computationally.
