Title: Expectation in perceptual decision-making

 

Abstract: Sensory signals are highly structured in both space and time. These structural regularities in visual information allow expectations to form about future stimulation, thereby facilitating decisions about visual features and objects. In my talk, I will discuss how the brain may combine top-down expectation signals with bottom-up stimulus input during perceptual decision-making - drawing from empirical data in human subjects using behavioral methods, electrophysiology (MEG) and neuroimaging (fMRI).
