Post-doc: metacognition, time perception, TMS, EEG

Summary: Metacognition is a hallmark of our mental abilities. Monitoring of internal states is typically studied in a paradigm where mental states are driven information in outside world. To investigate internally-driven processes we use time perception. Previous studies suggested that humans and animals my take into account their internal timing uncertainty, and thus an ability to monitor temporal error. However, only recently possibility to introspect about time errors was investigated in humans. 

Keywords: interval timing, time perception, error monitoring, metacognition, TMS, EEG,
