Action monitoring

Michael Pereira
SNSF Postdoc Mobility fellow

I am a postdoctoral researcher in cognitive neurosciences studying the neural mechanisms of perceptual consciousness and metacognition with psychophysics and computational modelling in healthy individuals as well as invasive electrophysiology with psychiatric and neurological patients. My goal is to find a mechanistic explanation of how single neurons in the human brain explains the fluctuations of our subjective perceptual experience within a single trial. I am currently hosted at the Laboratoire de Psychologie et NeuroCognition by Dr. Nathan Faivre, funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation.
