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.
FND meets consciousness research, is there a more interesting topic? (no)
Join us next Tuesday on link in QT! https://twitter.com/IoPPN_NREG/status/1648334150972178432
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

How does metacognition shape how we search for information? Happy to share our full theory+data paper out now in PsychReview (w/ @smfleming & Peter Dayan @MPICybernetics). We’ve made big chances since the 1st preprint (all new empirical section!) so here’s an updated thread 👇🧵
Frontal neurons fire for particular task states, but seem to remap between tasks. Turns out this remapping reveals a surprising algorithm for abstraction and sequence learning. I’ll discuss this across 2 workshop talks at #cosyne2023 . Come along if you're interested! ... (1/3)
Friday's Brain Meeting will be given by @HannekedenOuden
(Mal)adaptive biases in motivated action: computations, brains and psychopathology will discuss studies investigating the basis and (mal)adaptive nature of motivational biases
We are pleased to announce the launch of the #OPMCollaboration 🧠
In partnership with @youngepilepsy the project aimed to raise the voices of young people with epilepsy, by co-designing key elements of new brain scanning technology, OPM-MEG.
I am starting my own research group at @TheCrick Institute in London! We will be investigating how neuronal circuits in the brain drive social interactions between animals.
I have an immediate opening for a PhD student, apply by 22 March!
