Contact Dr Ulrik Beierholm

I am very interested in how the nervous system deals with uncertainty, whether in perception, decision making or learning. We use computational ideas (e.g. bayesian inference or reinforcement learning) to model this and test these ideas using several techniques such as psychphysics, fMRI, pharmacology etc.
