I am a cognitive neuroscientist using neuroimaging techniques to study social cognition and regularity learning in the healthy population and in schizophrenia. This research is driven by the ideas behind 'predictive coding', a theoretical framework for how the brain continually generates and updates predictive models of the world based on prior expectations and sensory experience. I also have an interest in imaging genetics, using the polygenic risk model.
