Neurocomputation and Neuroimaging Unit
My research interests are concerned with the computational principles and neuronal mechanisms underlying perception and perceptual learning. I am interested in the role of mismatch responses in hierarchically structured cortex in relation to predictive processing and Bayesian computation. Using electrophysiological measures, I investigate signatures of surprise in somatosensory and multisensory cortex.
