Vincent Moens

MD, PhD Student

vincent moens 140x180Vincent is a Medicine graduated PhD Student. He joined the lab in 2013 with a project aimed at building computational models of behavior that combine Bayesian Statistics techniques, machine learning and neuropsychochological models of decision making. His main interest is the modelling behavioural flexibility in a Bayesian perspective, specifically in the context of Habitual and Goal-Directed behaviours (cfr. Habitual and goal-directed learning and Innovation sections).
