I study how predictions influence our perception. I primarily focus on predictions about the sensory consequences of our own actions, which can explain things like why we can’t tickle ourselves, and why we can feel in control of abstract things like a mouse cursor, as long as it follows our intended movement. I’m particularly interested in the neural mechanisms underlying such phenomena. Furthermore, I’m interested in finding out what changes in predictive mechanisms are involved in disorders like schizophrenia. I use behavioural methods (psychophysics), neuroimaging (fMRI), and brain stimulation (tDCS/TMS) to answer such questions.
