Amour Simal

I am a Ph.D. candidate in Psychology – Cognitive neuroscience option –  at the University of Montreal.

My Ph.D. project focuses on the predictive nature of the brain. I use the electroencephalography (EEG) and magnetoencephalography (MEG) techniques to dynamically measure brain activity during the processing of auditory information. My aim is to study the brain activity elicited by auditory stimuli allowing to anticipate (predict) subsequent sounds.

Other research projects

  • 2021 – Current : Visual attention and memory : in collaboration with Dr. R. Dell’Acqua Lab (University of Padova)
