Gigerenzer and colleagues have proposed the ‘adaptive toolbox of heuristics’ as an account of resource-bounded human decision-making. According to these authors, evolution has endowed such toolboxes with ‘ecological rationality’, defined as the ability to make good quality decisions in their specific environments. Here we explore to what extent the(More)
Introduction The predictive processing principle has gained considerable interest as a strong candidate for explaining the unifying principles that underlie the brain’s activity, spanning the entire range of cortical activity from perception and motor control to social cognition and theory of mind. Yet, the current mathematical framework that supports(More)
In order to explain the distinct phenomenology of veridical and non-veridical percepts, Seth (2014) introduces the concept of counterfactual predictions to the Predictive Processing (PP) framework proposed by Clark (2013). The PP framework assumes that the brain generates predictions of its own sensory inputs based on generative models of the world that are(More)
The ‘sense of agency’ refers to the experiential state that one's actions cause events in the world. Developing a sense of agency allows infants to learn from interacting with the social and physical world in ways that would not be possible otherwise [1]. To date, few empirical studies seem to target this phenomenon in infancy directly.(More)
Predictive Processing (PP) [1], [2], [3] is becoming an influential account in cognitive neuroscience, including developmental neuroscience [4]. According to PP, human brains interpret their sensory inputs by predicting them, based on a hierarchy of generative models. These predictions are then compared to the actual, observed inputs, and the difference(More)
