The Perception, Attention & Memory team researches various higher cognitive functions using complementary methods (EEG, MEG, MRI, behavior…) while developing links with clinical research.
The PAM team was built on a shared interest in perception, attention, and memory processing, particularly in the auditory modality, and on complementary expertise in electrophysiology, neuroimaging, and experimental psychology. The team is located in the Vinatier Hospital, in an INSERM building (just in front of the Neurocampus building). Our main basic objectives were to improve our understanding of the neurophysiological mechanisms of perception, attention, and memory, and their interactions during wakefulness and sleep, in humans. We also characterized the alterations of these cognitive functions in various neurological or neurodevelopmental pathologies, which allowed us to design several new clinical tools.
