Priors in perception: Top-down modulation, Bayesian perceptual learning rate, and prediction error minimization.

  • Published 2017 in Consciousness and cognition


I discuss top-down modulation of perception in terms of a variable Bayesian learning rate, revealing a wide range of prior hierarchical expectations that can modulate perception. I then switch to the prediction error minimization framework and seek to conceive cognitive penetration specifically as prediction error minimization deviations from a variable… (More)
