This project aims at identifying the psychophysiological and behavioural unconscious correlates of the anticipation of future random events and their relationship with conscious anticipation.
In particular, we aim to identify how to leverage this phenomenon for devising automatic Decision Support Systems for example for avoiding future negative events.
