Computational and biological foundations of metacognition


  • Dr Stephen Fleming

    University of Oxford

Project summary

Stephen will begin his Fellowship in the laboratory of Professor Nathaniel Daw at New York University. There he will combine Bayesian models of human behaviour with brain imaging, to understand how we are able to reflect upon our own mental states. He will carry out this work in collaboration with Professor Larry Maloney, also at NYU. Under the guidance of his sponsor, Dr Matthew Rushworth, Stephen plans to conduct research at the University of Oxford to causally test the computational models of metacognition he develops at NYU.
