Together with the Translational Neuroimaging (TNM) Lab from the University of Marburg we focus on the perception of causality, its implications for embodied concepts such as a sense of agency (SoA), and its disturbances in psychoses such as schizophrenia spectrum disorder (SSD). In our approach we explore implicit measurements of an SoA and ways to model an SoA using methods from Optimal Control and Machine Learning. We want to test if the paradigms and models we develop can be applied as early behavioural biomarkers for diagnosing SSD or testing hypotheses about the inner processes of the disorder.
