We have a broad interest in higher-level brain functions, their relation to lower-level computations, and the role of context.

Research Directions

  • Study of relation between knowledge represented in neural networks and knowledge in humans;
  • uncertainty and predictive processes: what are the principles that organize the brain’s responses to uncertainty, and how these support predictive processes;
  • neurobiology of language: organization and interactions between brain systems that support language comprehension.
