POST-DOC: metacognition, time perception, human, TMS, M/EEG

Summary: Metacognition is a hallmark of our mental abilities. Monitoring of internal states is typically studied in a paradigm where mental states are driven by information from the outside world. To investigate internally-driven processes we use time perception. Previous studies suggested that humans and animals my take into account their internal timing uncertainty, and thus an ability to monitor temporal error. The project will investigate temporal error monitoring in humans using TMS & M/EEG.

Keywords: interval timing, time perception, error monitoring, metacognition, TMS, M/EEG.
