Research Interest

Survival crucially depends on our ability to extract information from the environment. This ability relies on learning about patterns that enable us to make predictions about what is likely to happen next. Sensitivity to violations of these patterns is necessary for timely reactions and adaptive responses to unexpected, or odd, events. Dr Garrido’s research team strives to understand the brain mechanisms and circuitry underlying these predictive processes. To address these questions we use a number of neuroimaging methods (EEG, MEG, fMRI) and computational modelling.
