I am interested in somatosensory, visual, and auditory awareness from a predictive coding perspective, in particular in the influence of prior expectations on consciousness, and in disentangling modality-specific from supra-modal mechanisms of consciousness. Using EEG and fMRI in combination with causal modelling and multivariate pattern analysis, I investigate the recurrent neural processes presumably underlying both (multi-)sensory consciousness and the top-down signals constantly generated by the predictive brain.
