Title: Predictive coding in sensory learning

Abstract: The ability to learn about regularities in the environment and to make predictions about future events is fundamental for adaptive behaviour, as it may provide a competitive advantage for anticipating reward or avoiding punishment. In this talk I will demonstrate that: 1) people are able to encode statistical regularities in the sensory environment even while their cognitive resources are taxed by concurrent demands and 2) violations to these regularities evoke sensory prediction errors that engage fronto-temporal networks with recurrent interactions. Finally, I will show how 3) the electrophysiology underlying predictive processes can be used to classify people with schizophrenia from healthy controls.
