Perception and decision-making are not automatic processes, but strongly shaped by internal brain states, which incorporate our goals, attention, expectations, and knowledge about the world. The mechanisms by which these “top-down factors” affect perception, cognition, and behavior are still largely unknown. Where do the neuronal top-down signals come from? How do they change communication between sensory and decision-related brain regions? And how do these factors affect our perception and decision-making? These questions are the focus of investigation of our group. We use behavioural and neuroimaging methods (MEG, fMRI, TMS) in the healthy and pathological brain to examine how percepts and decisions are shaped by what we expect (prediction) and deem relevant (attention).
