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:
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.
