Cambridge AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership - Student Profiles



A popular view in cognitive and computational neuroscience, "Predictive Processing", portrays the brain as an ever-active anticipatory machine, greeting incoming patterns of transduced energy with an internal environment teeming with expectations concerning its probable shape and structure. I work on the implications that this theory has for our understanding of how brains represent their environments.
