Mental time travel sickness and a Bayesian remedy

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debatepeer-review

8 Scopus citations


Mental time travel is a principled, but a narrow and computationally limiting, implementation of foresight. Future events can be predicted with sufficient specificity without having to have episodic memory of specific past events. Bayesian estimation theory provides a framework by which one can make predictions about specific future events by combining information about various generic patterns in the past experience.
