The human brain makes predictions about the future and constantly compares them with the external environment to generate a stable sense of reality and minimise uncertainty. When predictions and the external environment do not match, a “prediction error” is emitted which is used to adjust and improve future predictions.

The current objective of the Neuroscience Department at RINED is to investigate how the use of a special perceptual deprivation chamber can alter the formation of these predictions.

To this aim, we use non-invasive techniques that allow to measure cortical activity (EEG) and heart rate variability (HRV) while in this special chamber.
