Matt Lehet received his Ph.D. from Carnegie Mellon University in Psychology and Cognitive Neuroscience in 2017. Before graduate school he worked as a research assistant at the University of Pennsylvania and received his B.A. in Psychology from Reed College. He is interested in how prediction error between movement efferents and perceptual afferent signals affect neural representations and cognitions. More specifically, he is interested in how these neural representations allow us to think using language through self directed speech and how these mechanisms may be distorted through affective disorders or psychosis. In his free time he enjoys painting, kayaking, and gardening.
