Dr. Aurelio Cortese, former trainee at the S&T Office Tokyo, joined the Department of Decoded Neurofeedback of Advanced Telecommunications Research Institute International (ATR) 3 years ago and coccluded his PhD studies this year. Congratulations!
He had a highly succesful year and recently published not just one, but two papers on Nature!
Dr. Cortese did research on confidence and measured changes in the brain through functional MRI. The first Nature paper that was released this year was titled “Fear reduction without fear through reinforcement of neural activity that bypasses conscious exposure” and discussed fear conditioning and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Most recent publication with the catchy title “Multivoxel neurofeedback selectively modulates confidence without changing perceptual performance” discusses a central controversy in metacognition studies.
