New PhD student
Audrey Kist obtained a PhD scholarship from the French government to continue investigating with us the subcortical correlates of consciousness, in collaboration with Mircea Polosan. Congrats Audrey!
In this new study lead by Michael Pereira in collaboration with HUG and the Wyss Center, we had the opportunity to record single neurons in a human participant while he provided detection and confidence judgments. We combined this dataset with EEG recordings from healthy volunteers and a computational model to show that evidence accumulation by parietal neurons is a shared mechanism between conscious detection and confidence.
