We’re in the middle of a workshop on fMRI analysis using FSL and Nipype, a step into an open-source world, allowing us reproducibility and transparency in our fMRI analysis. We learn how to use FSL, code, and create a full preprocessing to analysis pipeline. Looking forward to implementing this in our next fMRI projects and
In this preregistered study, we examined SoA and its associated confidence judgments using an embodied virtual reality paradigm in psychosis patients and controls. Our results show that psychosis patients not only have a severely reduced ability for discriminating their actions but they also do not show proper metacognitive insight into this deficit. Furthermore, an exploratory
The PhD candidate Yoni Stern (co-supervised by Dr. Roy Salomon Prof. Danny Koren) has won the prestigious and competitive Azrieli Graduate Studies Fellowship. His work combines cognitive neuroscience and clinical psychology to understand how changes in the embodied “Self” are affected by stress during the early stages of psychosis using virtual reality technology.
Although we experience our Self as stable our sense of Self is constantly updated. To understand how this happens, we looked at how sense of agency (SoA) is modulated by serial dependence and previous trials, examining the computational mechanisms allowing us to keep the Self in balance. The results of this study are now out
