Johannes Fahrenfort

I am an assistant professor at the department of Brain and Cognition (University of Amsterdam), and PI together with Simon van Gaal in the Conscious Brain Lab.

In the Conscious Brain Lab we use EEG, fMRI and psychophysics to investigate consciousness, with special emphasis on the contribution of decision making (confidence, metacognition), perception, attention and working memory to conscious experience. My current line of research explores the impact of perceptual bias and criterion setting on putative correlates of concious and unconscious processing. I have special expertise in EEG, for which I have developed the ADAM toolbox that implements decoding and forward modeling of EEG data. You can find my personal website here:
