Body & Perception

Managing Your Body & Your Perception

The most important skills of a Manager involve making major decisions under stress due to difficult conditions, limited time, excessive information noise and antagonistic interpersonal interactions. Psychophysiological self-regulation refers to a person’s ability to regulate affective and cognitive states and to adapt to different environmental conditions, thus allowing a flexible homeostasis that preserves behaviour in response to different situational needs.

Everything that every effective manager does is sandwiched between action on the ground and reflection in the abstract. Action without reflection is thoughtless; reflection without action is passive. Every manager has to find a way to combine these two mind-sets – to function at the point where reflective thinking meets practical doing.

Pierpaolo Iodice

Dr. Pierpaolo Iodice investigates the neurobiology underpinning goal-directed learning and decision-making. He focuses on how different aspects of value are learned, represented and used to guide choice behaviour within frontal-striatal-dopaminergic circuits. He is particularly interested in the way in which our brain is able to integrate across these multiple different types of information in order to guide appropriate decisions. At the moment his main research issue is how living organisms (and possibly robots) could develop higher cognition from sensorimotor skills. According to Gibson’s influential idea a necessary aspect of object perception is specifying the potential actions afforded by objects in our environment. He tests the hypothesis that, under conditions of target uncertainty, the brain prepares multiple actions, in parallel, for competing potentials targets before selecting one of them to execute.
