Marco Treven

Marco Treven is an MD/Ph.D. and resident at the Department of Neurology, Medical University of Vienna (MUW). He received his Ph.D. in Neurobiology from the MUW with a dissertation about extrasynaptic GABA(A) receptors in neurological disorders and basal ganglia. Building on this pharmacological work, he has subsequently developed a particular focus on movement disorders and deep brain stimulation. He is interested in deliberate, automatic, and repetitive human behavioral patterns, expressed in movement and abstract cognition, and how such patterns are related to generative internal models or beliefs. In this context, he aims to expand the cognitive framework of Predictive Processing in neurological disorders and extended/distributed cognition. This includes the notion of individually and culturally shaped affordances and the principles of active inference, prediction error minimization, and determinants of belief revision. The potential relevance of this work extends from a better understanding of neuropsychiatric disorders to the interplay between public health and sustainable behavior within environmental niches.
