Cognitive computational models of information sampling under threat
Information sampling is a requirement in many threat-related scenarios. This project deals with optimal information sampling in an ethological computer game, and approximative shortcuts that biological agents may use.
The emergence of subjective feelings during foraging under predation threat
Non-human approach-avoidance conflict tests are classic paradigms to elicit anxiety-like behaviours, and mimick aspects of foraging for food while under threat of predation. We have recently translated this class of paradigms to humans (e. g. Bach et al. 2014, Current Biology; Korn et al. 2017, Biological Psychiatry). However, it is unclear how behaviour in this paradigm relates to subjective feeling.
Skin bioelectronics and cognitive processes
With a partner lab at University of Oslo, we investigate how bioimpedance signals can serve to infer cognitive processes.
Master theses: “Scaling up computational emotion research”
BachLab now offers MSc projects on scaling up computational emotion research, by harnessing the power of crowdsourcing and ubiquitous consumer-grade sensors. Please find more information in the attached document.
