Current research

The broad goal of our project is to examine object recognition within the context of predictive coding theory. Specifically, we are investigating how predictions modulate the representation of complex objects in the brain and in behavioural responses. We use a combination of electroencephalography and machine learning to record brain activity and decode information about object stimuli from neural responses when these stimuli have different predictive values. We also aim to link this with participants’ reaction times and accuracy on a discrimination task regarding the same set of object stimuli.
