Axis 4. Perceptual awareness and metacognition


Conscience perceptuelle et métacognition

We seek to identify the electrophysiological mechanisms that give rise to the phenomenal experience associated with the processing of perceptual information, in other words what it feels like to consciously perceive an object. We also study the brain's ability to observe itself, which gives us the so-called metacognitive ability to evaluate and control our own mental states. Our hypothesis is that consciousness and metacognition depend on a mechanism of accumulation of evidence.
