The Unfolding Action Model that Cris recently published in Psych Rev now features as a Research Highlight in Nature Human Behaviour. You can read the piece by Anne-Marike Schiffer here, and the paper itself can be found here!
Congrats to Kate and Esther et al. with their new paper that just got accepted in NeuroImage! In this work, they investigated the time course of neural oscillations in processing reward during declarative learning. Earlier research showed that signed reward prediction errors (SRPE’s; “better-than-expected” signals) drive declarative learning. In the current paper, the occurrence of reward prediction errors (RPEs) was further validated by oscillatory signatures in the theta, high-beta and high-alpha bands. The paper can be found here!
Our own Pieter Huycke has won the first Mensenkennis Trofee, for his article on the ideal pricing of a product. This award was created in order to stimulate students to communicate the results of their research to a general audience.
You can read the article (written in Dutch) here.
As from the first of October, our entire lab has moved to the first floor of the psychology building! If you want to pay our new offices a visit, follow this link!

Congratulations to Pieter and Cristian who succesfully acquired personal funding from the FWO-Vlaanderen! Pieter received funding for a PhD position on his project entitled ‘learning to synchronise: computational and EEG investigations of human flexibility’. Cris secured funding for a post-doc position on his project entitled ‘The Value of Time: A neurocomputational model of action sequences’. Congratulations to both!
