The cognitive neuroscience lab conducts researchs to understand the neural bases of Action and related cognitive processes along several dimensions: motor, linguistic, social and intentional. We especially study the brain functional architecture and neuronal computations underlying these processes using modern brain imaging techniques (IRMf, EEG-MEG), experimental psychology techniques and mathematical / computational modeling.
