Commentary: Forms of prediction in the nervous system – Teufel and Fletcher

As we interact with the world around us, we process loads of sensory information across different modalities. But this isn't done passively – the overwhelming consensus is that we proactively interact with the environment, using priors or predictions about the world and about sensory consequences to optimise and streamline perception and action. For instance, when … Continue reading Commentary: Forms of prediction in the nervous system – Teufel and Fletcher

Papers of interest this week (courtesy of my supervisors): Functional connectivity of SII and cerebellum in sensory attenuation – fMRI and force-matching AI helps inform role of dopa cells in learning – predicted future rewards encoded as probability distribution, not single mean (which got me thinking back to this one) Somatosensory oscillations and tactile attention … Continue reading Briefly…
