RESEARCH AXES 1- Perception, Cognition & Behavior : Almost all teams of the INCC are involved in research on how humans perceive, understand and interact with the environment. 2- Development & Plasticity The teams that are most active on this axis are the Speech & Cognition and the Perception, Action, Cognition (PAC). 3- Neurophysiology & Neurological Diseases Several INCC teams study the neural and glial basis of integrative brain functions as well as their cellular and molecular underpinnings, partially with a particular focus on pathological conditions.

 Our research is focused on encoding learning and memory in the basal ganglia, a set of subcortical nuclei implicated in the adaptive control of behavior. Reciprocally connected with the cerebral cortex and the limbic system, the basal ganglia participate to the detection of environmental cues and to the selection of appropriate actions based on motivation and expectancy of reward.
