Faculty of Social Sciences

Floris de Lange is full Professor at the Radboud University in Nijmegen, Netherlands and Principal Investigator of the Predictive Brain Lab at the Donders Institute. He obtained a Master's degree (cum laude) in Artificial Intelligence in 2003, and a PhD degree (cum laude) in Cognitive Neuroscience in 2008, both at Radboud University Nijmegen. During his PhD research, supervised by Ivan Toni, he investigated how mental simulations of perception and action are neurally implemented, using fMRI and MEG. From 2007-2009, he was a post-doctoral fellow in the lab of Prof. Stanislas Dehaene at Neurospin, Paris, France. There, he investigated the neural dynamics of conscious and unconscious decision-making. From 2009, he established the Predictive Brain Lab at the Donders Institute, where they study how various forms of prior knowledge modify perception and decision-making, both in health and disease.
