The scientific objectives of the Sensory and Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory (LNSC) consist of:
- Advancing our understanding of neural mechanisms and processes involved in normal or pathological functioning of sensory systems.
- Analyzing how these systems interact to sustain body perceptions and extra-personal space, and the underpinning cerebral mechanisms and mental representations.
- Understanding how cognition modulates these perceptions and representations.
- Designing new cognitive rehabilitation methods, assessing their potential to promote sensory and/or cognitive recovery, and gaining insight into the cerebral mechanisms engaged in this recovery.
The LNSC is composed of 4 teams:
- Neuronal Dynamics and Audition team
- Pathophysiology and Therapy of Vestibular Disorders team
- Multisense and Body team
- Sensory and Cognitive Rehabilitation team
Each team carries out research in both humans and animals to better apprehend the neural bases (peripheral and central) of the phenomena under study and their cognitive and behavioral correlates.
