Fields of research

Cognitive neurosciences / neuropsychology /neuroeconomy

Research Theme

Study of fine-grained cognitive representations and processes underlying cognition and perception; of contrast between conscious and non-conscious operations, to identify signatures of conscious level processing.

 Analyze the impact of education on the adult brain organization for reading and arithmetic.

 Study the development of language and consciousness in human infants and young children and human adult architecture for sentence-level processing of language.

We investigate high-level human cognitive functions using experimental psychology, neuropsychology and neuroimaging approaches (functional magnetic resonance imaging, fMRI; magneto- and electro-encephalography, MEG & EEG).

Dates: 

18 September 2017 - 29 June 2018

Date limite de candidature: 

29 June 2018

Period

Project

The applicant would be integrated in an ongoing ERC project called “NeuroSyntax” whose goal is to understand the neural representation of syntactic structures in various domains (natural language, mathematic, music, artificial grammars). The research involves brain-imaging (fMRI, MEG) and electrophysiological recordings (ECOG, SEEG) in humans as well as comparative work in non-human primates.
