First pre-print: Choices change the temporal weighting of decision evidence

I posted my first pre-print on bioRxiv: https://doi.org/10.1101/2020.03.06.979690. Here, we followed up on our previous paper in Current Biology, where we showed that human participants show confirmation bias in low-level perceptual decisions by selectively overweighting choice-consistent evidence. In the latest pre-print, we further showed that intermittent choices reduce the sensitivity of subsequent perceptual evidence, compared … Continue reading First pre-print: Choices change the temporal weighting of decision evidence

Postdoc transition grant

The grant is a 1 year internal grant offered by the Vice-Deanery for Research at the faculty of Medicine in the UKE. It is intended to support young researchers in the … Continue reading Postdoc transition grant

Between the lines: Current Biology, 2018

The first paper from my PhD, titled “Confirmation bias through selective overweighting of choice-consistent evidence” is just out in Current Biology. A blogpost explaining the paper and its findings, co-written by me, can be found here. In the blogpost below, I share the methodological insights I gained while working on the project, and some mistakes that … Continue reading Between the lines: Current Biology, 2018
