Neurophysiology of cognitive processes

PI: Jean-René Duhamel, Sylvia Wirth





Our laboratory is hosted in the Institute of Cognitive Sciences Marc Jeannerod (CNRS) in Lyon, France. It investigates the neural mechanisms underlying the spatial and social representation of the world. We use experimental tools such as intracranial electrophysiological recordings and pharmacological manipulations in non human primates to understand the computations at work during live behavior. The processes we study are at play in numerous pathological diseases from Alzheimer disease to autism.
