In her presentation during the ‘Science of Consciousness’ conference 2021, Prof. dr. Heleen Slagter, Principal Investigator of the Cognition & Plasticity Laboratory of the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, talks about the predictive mind: the ability of our cognitive systems to not only perceive the world, but also infer what the world should be like, given our previous experiences. This is a fascinating exploration of some of our minds’ most amazing abilities.
