LNC - UMR 7291

Laboratory of Cognitive Neuroscience

The Laboratory of Cognitive Neuroscience (UMR 7291), located within the Behavior, Brain & Cognition Federation on Saint-Charles campus, focuses on the neural bases of cognitive processes, which are studied through the analysis of behavior and brain activity with various techniques (EEG, fMRI, MEG, single unit recordings…).

Nine different research fields are developed within different research teams:

  • “Cognition and pathophysiology of basal ganglia”
  • “Attention, cerebral dynamics and chronometry”
  • “Neural bases of spatial cognition”
  • “Neural bases of sensorimotor behavior”
  • ” Music, language and writing”
  • “Neurodevelopment of motor and social cognition”
  • “Neural bases of somatosensation”
  • “Brain, obesity and diet imbalance”
  • ATIP/Avenir “Neural bases of motivation”

Research teams

All LNC teams are affiliated to the neuroscience master’s program and can thus train neuroscience master’s students and offer them projects to apply for a Ph.D. scholarship.
