Pierre Vassiliadis PhD defence. “Mechanisms underlying reinforcement learning of motor skills”. February 2023

Congratulations to Pierre who successfully defended his PhD !

On the 7th of February, Pierre successfully defended his PhD entitled "Mechanisms underlying reinforcement learning of motor skills". Pierre performed this work jointly between the CoActions lab and the lab of Prof. Friedhelm Hummel at EPFL, in Switzerland. His PhD work investigated the involvement of reinforcement learning processes during the acquisition and retention of new motor skills with behavioural appraches, as well as non-invasive brain stimulation and fMRI. Pierre is now a post-doc at EPFL where he works on temporal interference stimulation and reinforcement learning.
