Is Schizophrenia a deficit in how the brain performs Bayesian inference?

Current theories suggest that schizophrenia could be described as a deficit in how the brain learns and uses internal models of its environment. In a collaboration with the Royal Edinburgh Hospital, Dr Peggy Seriès and her team tested those theories by modelling the behaviour of patients with schizophrenia performing a visual statistical learning task.

Peggy Series retained her title of French champion in Track Cycling in her age group, for the 4th year running.

The event as the French championship in track cycling Masters, it was happening in Le Neubourg in Normandy over 4 days of competition.
