My main interest is individual differences in learning. I am applying learning paradigms to assess differences in information processing across the schizotypal spectrum.
Particularly I am studying how schizotypal individuals show impairment in contingency learning. For my project, I am using the Drift-Diffusion model and Reinforcement Learning models to describe the individuals differences in schizotypy.
Since 2015 I have been working with the Cochrane Collaboration, specifically with the Cochrane Schizophrenia Group. In 2018, with a group of health-care professionals, we created the Mexican Cochrane Center. Besides contributing with the goals of Cochrane (Producing evidence, Making our evidence accessible, Advocating for evidence, and Building an effective sustainable organization); we created Evidology, a non-profit organization to train health-care professionals on Evidence-Based Medicine.
In April 2019 I have been honoured to be part of the '30 under 30' series for "contributing to Cochrane activities in a range of ways, all promoting evidence-informed health decision making across the world".
More frequent, shorter trials enhance acquisition in a training session: There is a free lunch!
