Academic interests

The purpose of my PhD-project is to understand the neural basis of temporal prediction in the human brain. Is our brain a prediction machine to some extent? I also study whether patients with frontal lesions are impaired in temporal predictions and prediction updates. I use the EEG-method in combination with auditory experiments.

The ability to predict is fundamental and unique feature of the brain. It is important for every aspect of human existence, from the core brain processes supporting perception, attention, language, and body movement, to the complex sociocultural expressions of dance, music and human social interaction.
