Methods

Our traditional specificities (behaviour, psychophysics, eye and hand kinematic analyses) are coupled since a few year to a pluri-disciplinary approach (imaging, cerebral stimulation, neurology, neuropsychology, functional rehabilitation).

Psychophysical methods are based on the on-line modification of sensory inputs and of various sensory-motor loops, allowing new contributions to the understanding of perceptive capabilities, learning and adaptation both in normal and pathological subjects. A temporal resolution close to neuronal processing time is a distinctive methodological feature which allows us an access to the timing of information processing by the central nervous system. Another original feature is the capability to manipulate sensory input unknown to the subject, allowing to identify several automatic mechanisms acting either instantaneously or iteratively over the long term.
