Le vendredi 1er juillet 2016, le LPNC a invité le Dr Marta Garrido (université du Queensland, Australie) pour un séminaire intitulé « Predictive and efficient coding in sensory learning ». Ce séminaire aura lieu à 13h à l’ARSH.


The ability to learn about regularities in the environment and to make predictions about future events is fundamental for adaptive behaviour, as it may provide a competitive advantage for anticipating reward or avoiding punishment. In this talk I will demonstrate that: 1) people are able to encode statistical regularities in the sensory environment even while their cognitive resources are taxed by concurrent demands and 2) violations to these regularities evoke sensory prediction errors that engage fronto-temporal networks with recurrent interactions. Finally, I will show that 3) these networks may be disrupted when predictive processes go awry in people at risk of developing schizophrenia and in coma.


Short biography: 
Dr Marta Garrido leads the Computational Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory at the University of Queensland and is Chief Investigator in the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Integrative Brain Function.  Dr Garrido received her PhD in 2008 from University College London under the supervision of Professor Karl Friston.  She then completed postdocs at University California Los Angeles and back at University College London. In 2013 she moved to the University of Queensland on a Discovery Early Career Researcher Award and later established her independent laboratory at the Queensland Brain Institute.
