SISSA is partner of PRELICA project

In order to improve both on-board comfort and the environmental impact during navigation, the European Regional Development Fund co-finances the project PRELICA (Advanced methodologies for hydro-acoustic design of naval propulsion). 
SISSA is one of the PRELICA project partners. Mathlab research group will contribute to the formulation of accurate predictions of the hydro-acoustic emissions of the propeller. 

The PRELICA project has been started on 1 May 2017 and will last 21 months.

What happens when people hear voices that others don’t

People who hear voices — both with and without a diagnosed psychotic illness — are more sensitive than other subjects to a 125-year-old experiment designed to induce hallucinations. And the subjects’ ability to learn that these hallucinations were not real may help pinpoint those in need of psychiatric treatment, suggests a new Yale-led study published Aug. 11 in the journal Science. The research has been carried out by Philip Corlett and Al Powers, Yale University, and Chris Mathys, SISSA.

People with autism are less surprised by the unexpected

Dr Rebecca Lawson and Professor Geraint Rees from UCL Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging, and Dr Christoph Mathys from SISSA found that adults with autism were less surprised by unexpected images in a simple learning task than adults without autism, and those who were the least surprised had the most pronounced symptoms. The results suggests that differences in how people with autism build visual expectations may link to social difficulties. The study shed new light on our understanding of how people with autism see the world differently.
