Neural mechanisms underlying action-based predictions and their effects on perception
Virtually all movements that we make produce sensory input, thereby shaping a large part of our sensory world. Although research has shown that action-based predictions affect perception and neural processing of such self-generated stimuli, the underlying mechanisms of these modulations are not well-understood.
Project A10 uses a combination of univariate and multivariate analysis of functional MRI data, MR-spectroscopy, and behavioural methods to shed light on the neural and neurochemical mechanisms underlying action-based modulations. Furthermore, we will test how action-based predictions may relate to altered perception in hallucination-prone healthy individuals.
