Welcome to the website of ImpAct
Integrative, Multisensory, Perception, Action and Cognition Team
On 1/01/2011, Unit U864 has joined the new CRNL (Centre de Recherche en Neuroscience de Lyon),(INSERM-CNRS-Lyon1, Dir. O. Bertrand) as the ImpAct team headed by Denis Pélisson
We are a research unit affiliated with INSERM (U1028), with CNRS (UMR 5292), and with Claude Bernard University, Lyon 1, and the Lyon Hospitals. Our unit is member of the Handicap Federation Institute (IFRH25).
The scientific project of our Unit aims at identifying the spatial and motor representations that underlies the awareness of the body location and the capacity to act on the world. Our efforts are directed towards understanding the pathophysiology of the neurological deficits related to perception, internal representation, and action functions, aiming at the development of neurological rehabilitation techniques.
