Pedro Espinosa

Graduate Student (Humboldt/Einstein)


I am a Psychologist by training and I graduated as a M.Sc. from the Berlin School of Mind and Brain with a focus on cognitive neuroscience. During my Master’s, I joined the lab to conduct my dissertation on the representational dynamics underlying false memory. As a PhD aspirant I am broadly interested in studying perception and memory under a predictive processing framework. More specifically, I aim to study whether facilitated perception and memory can be explained by the activation and precision of visual priors. When I’m not in the lab I enjoy cooking, playing guitar or riding my bicycle to another country.
