Floris de Lange

Principal Investigator

Short Biography:

I am full Professor at the Radboud University in Nijmegen, Netherlands and Principal Investigator of the Predictive Brain Lab at the Donders Institute.

I obtained a Master's degree in Neuropsychology (2001) and Artificial Intelligence (2003), and a PhD degree in Cognitive Neuroscience (2008) at Radboud University Nijmegen. After a post-doctoral fellowship with Prof. Stanislas Dehaene at Neurospin, Paris, France (2007-2009), I established the Predictive Brain Lab at the Donders Institute, where we study how various forms of prior knowledge modify perception and decision-making, both in health and disease.
