Neurocognitive sciences

Faculty members within this research area study the neuro-cognitive bases of perception, consciousness, attention and motor control, and make use of a variety of experimental models (both in Man and laboratory animals) and techniques (such as psychophysics, behavioral analysis, EEG/ERP recording, TMS, fMRI, NIRS, neuropsychological analysis of brain-damaged patients, single-neuron recording from the macaque brain).
