Our team is composed of cognitive scientists working on the neurobiological and psychological foundations of consciousness. We are especially interested in how conscious and unconscious processes differ at both the psychological and neural level. We use various behavioral methods (e.g., priming, psychophysics) and brain imaging techniques (e.g., fMRI, EEG) to study how humans process things unconsciously (e.g., as in situations of subliminal perception, sleep or hypnosis) and compare it to situations of conscious processing.
The vision team of the Laboratoire Psychologie de la Perception has research interests in all aspects of visual perception. Its expertise covers visual attention, visual awareness and perceptual decisions, sensorimotor coupling, 3D perception, and the interaction of vision with the other senses. It relies on experimental methods issued from psychophysics, neuroimagery, patient studies, and modelling.
