Research

We aim at establishing fundamental neurocognitive models of training-induced plasticity in the healthy and neurological brain. On this basis, we then develop and implement neurophysiologically-informed cognitive training programs for the rehabilitation of neurologic disorders and the enhancement of cognition in healthy populations.

We also investigate how our interventions may help improve health-related behaviors ranging from eating habits to addictions, and reaching supra-normal performance in expert populations (elite athletes, videogamers,...) by influencing implicit neurocognitive processes.

Our researches are based on neuroimaging, neurostimulation and pharmacological approaches (and combinations thereof).
