Fields of research

Neurophysiology / systems neuroscience

Research Theme

Our research concerns the neural dynamics in cerebral cortex, cerebellum and basal basal ganglia. We investigate the mechanisms underlying the emergence of functional properties of neurons, persistent activity and decision making as well as the emergence of synchrony in relation with the physiology and the physiopathology of the central nervous system. Our approach combines theory (methods borrowed from statistical mechanics, dynamical system theory, numerical simulations) and experiements (electrophysiology in-vitro, morphology and anatomy)  in the framework of interdisciplinary collaborations between the theoreticians and the neurophysiologists within the team. We also cooperate with experimentalists from other laboratories on projects which involve electrophysiology in-vivo in cat and behaving monkeys.
