We have made great progress over 2 years in our quest for effective building blocks of embodied intelligence. Investigating topics from tactile sensing all the way to human machine collaboration. Check out our journey thus far http://embodiedintelligence.web.ox.ac.uk
New study from @nadine_dijkstra & @smfleming published in @NatureComms finds the more vividly a person imagines something, the more likely it is that they believe it’s real.
Our recent metacognition preprint has been "published" by the obviously predatory "journal" 'SIAM International Journal'. We definitely did not give them permission to do this! What can we do to make them take it down? Help! https://siamsite.com/index.php/siam/article/view/21
FND meets consciousness research, is there a more interesting topic? (no)

Due to an unprecedented (!!) number of submissions, we need to temporarily pause registration to reserve space for presenting authors of accepted papers. Registration will reopen first to presenters and then to everyone after the review process has been completed.
Here are two stupendous articles on octopus chemo-detection, which just appeared in Nature. https://www.nature.com/articles/s41586-023-05822-1 and https://www.nature.com/articles/s41586-023-05808-z
I am SO excited to share that our paper 'Sensory strength distinguishes imagination from reality' is now published! It was a long process but I'm so happy with the result. With @smfleming
Subjective signal strength distinguishes reality from imagination https://www.nature.com/articles/s41467-023-37322-1 by @nadine_dijkstra @smfleming; "when virtual or imagined signals are strong enough, they become subjectively indistinguishable from reality"; it has this Arthur C. Clarke ring to it...
Now out in @NatureHumBehav! https://www.nature.com/articles/s41562-023-01570-4. Together with @torwager & Matt Jones, we studied how people update their high-stakes beliefs given new information. We focused on beliefs in fraud following the 2020 U.S. election. More details: https://twitter.com/rotembot/status/1466469484928057354?s=20 (1/6)
There has been a lot of progress in our understanding of how the brain organises relationships in cognitive maps. But how is this knowledge used when guiding novel choice? Work with @TankredSaanum, @cpilab, @nico_schuck & @doellerlab now in @NatureNeuro https://rdcu.be/c83tL
A wonderful way to start the week. Full of admiration for Ukrainians in Croatia who have not only relocated their lives and their families but also set up their own organisation to support their community and delighted the embassy has been able to support their work. https://twitter.com/ukincroatia/status/1642827625344245762
