I am a PhD candidate, funded by the IRTG 1901. My work focuses on predictive mechanisms in healthy participants and patients with Schizophrenia. Specifically, I am interested in understanding how we predict the sensory consequences of our actions and how the impairment of the mechanisms that support this process might help in explaining some of the cardinal symptoms of Schizophrenia. To answer these questions, I use both behavioural and electrophysiological (EEG) methods.
